Chanel's Legacy draws off to win E.L. Gaylord Memorial


Chanel’s Legacy pulled away to a 4 3/4-length win over Country Candy in Friday night’s $50,000 E.L. Gaylord Memorial at Remington Park. It was another three lengths back to favorite Gold Shock in third.

The Gaylord was for 2-year-old fillies over 6 1/2 furlongs.

Chanel’s Legacy ($21) was always prominent, stalking The Last Scout and Country Candy through an opening quarter in 22.06 seconds, then moving to the fore through a half-mile in 44.85 seconds. Chanel’s Legacy went on to cover the distance on a fast track in 1:17.23.

Ramon Vazquez was aboard the winner for Poindexter Thoroughbreds and trainer Lynn Chleborad.

“We thought a lot of her in Iowa by putting her into a stakes race in her first race,” Chleborad said. “She’s young, but she likes to work, and she’s done nothing wrong. We think she’s going to be good, and we just hope she keeps going.”

Chanel’s Legacy was third in the $90,000 Iowa Sorority at Prairie Meadows in her career debut in August, then won a maiden special weight at Remington Park. She was making her third career start in the Gaylord.

Chanel’s Legacy is a daughter of Dominus and was bred in Iowa by Allen Poindexter.
