Charles Town: Sea of Green upsets

Email

Sea of Green ($33.40) made a sweeping five-wide move entering the stretch and overtook 8-5 favorite Baby Shark to score a half-length victory in the $100,000 Charles Town Dash.

It was the first stakes win for the

5-year-old Sea of Green since he won the $150,000 Gallant Bob Stakes at his home track, Philadelphia Park, in October 2001. For trainer Janice Gerace, the win was just her sixth from 104 starters this year and her first from 11 horses she has started at Charles Town.

Ridden by Nilo Perez, a late substitute for Jose Flores, Sea Green covered the 4 1/2 furlongs over a muddy track in 52.20 seconds.
