Chick Fight returns home for Frances Genter

Email

Chick Fight will attempt to win her first race since a dominating victory in last season's Festival of Champions at Canterbury Park when she faces eight Minnesota-bred 3-year old filly rivals in the $35,000 Frances Genter Stakes.

Trained by Mac Robertson, Chick Fight went unbeaten in three starts as a juvenile and left her fans in Minnesota something to remember with her 10-length victory in the Northern Light Debutante on Festival Day. She didn't make an impression when campaigned at the Oaklawn Park meeting, but a recent series of rapid works and a rider switch to leading jockey Dean Butler suggests Chick Fight is still the filly to beat in this six-furlong sprint.

Five Nations has two daylight wins from four starts over the Canterbury strip. Fourth after trouble at the start when trying open company in her last race, Five Nations meets Chick Fight for the first time in the Genter Stakes. Juan Rivera has the call for trainer Gary Scherer.

All Hallow's Eve won her maiden in her first start in a fashion that suggests this assignment is not out of her reach.

w Six colts and geldings will contest the $35,000 Victor S. Myers Jr. Stakes for Minnesota-bred 3-year olds, and a case can be made for nearly every starter.

A Steel Trap has turned in two impressive efforts from his four Canterbury starts, and was a five-length winner over several of his Myers rivals five weeks ago. A Steel Trap just missed when trying open company in his last race, and sports a bullet work in preparation for this assignment. Jose Ferrer has the call for trainer Tammy Domenosky.

Nomorewineforeddie has been favored in three starts since returning to Canterbury after winning his maiden in impressive fashion at Oaklawn in March. He was narrowly defeated after a troubled trip when facing fellow Myers starter First Captain in their most recent outing.
