Thistledown: Caviar N Champagne leaves rivals behind in Mackey Memorial


Caviar N Champagne made it look easy drawing off to win the $50,000 Michael G. Mackey Memorial at Thistledown on Saturday.

Trained by Jeff Radosevich and ridden by Scott Spieth, Caviar N Champagne was seventh early in the field of 12 Ohio-bred fillies and mares. Spieth angled the 4-year-old filly five wide into the stretch and she drew off to win by 5 1/4 lengths. The venerable Pay the Man rallied for second, a length and a quarter in front of Startin Something.

The running time for the six furlongs over a track labeled fast was 1.10.60. Caviar N Champagne returned $11.20 to win.
