Northlands: Claresmiezie easily conquers Chariot Chaser


Heavily favored Claresmiezie paid $2.50 for her five-length win over Commander Sue in the $50,000 Chariot Chaser at Northlands Park. Only four horses contested the six-furlong sprint for 3-year-old fillies and show wagering was not allowed.

With Rico Walcott aboard, Claresmiezie broke sharply from the inside of Commander Sue and they dueled through moderate fractions of 23.20 and 47.40 seconds over a fast track. Claresmiezie started to pull away on the stretch turn and opened up a five-length lead at the top of the stretch.  She was under strong urging from Walcott while maintaining her margin.

The final time was 1:11.80.
