My Option breaks through in Chicago Handicap for first win of 4-year-old campaign


ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. – My Option won the Grade 3 Arlington Oaks last summer and rallied with a flourish to finish a close third in the Grade 2 Raven Run at Keeneland last fall. Hopes were high for her 4-year-old campaign this year, and in her third start of the season, My Option delivered. Splitting horses under Eddie Perez after turning into the homestretch, My Option blew past pace-setting Flower Spell and won the Grade 3, $150,000 Chicago Handicap by 6 1/2 lengths in what might well have been the best race of her career.
