Delaware Park: Chamois wins Stanton Stakes at 2-5


Chamois came through as the 2-5 favorite in the $50,000 Stanton Stakes at Delaware Park on Wednesday, but only just.

In a scratch-reduced field of four 3-year-olds going 1 1/16 miles on turf, Chamois got up by a neck over Smash and Grab, the longest shot on the board at 6.60-1. Cerro finished 1 3/4 lengths farther back in third, with Fredericksburg fourth and last.

Under Joe Bravo, Chamois covered the distance in 1:41.41 on firm turf and paid $2.80. There was no show wagering.

Chamois, a colt by Smart Strike, is owned by Jon and Sarah Kelly and trained by Christophe Clement.
