Thistledown: Caviar N Champagne wins Petro Memorial


Caviar N Champagne prompted the early pace in the $50,000 J. Wm. Petro Memorial under Scott Spieth at Thistledown on Sunday before drawing clear by nearly three lengths in upper stretch and going on to win by a half-length.

Trained by Jeff Radosevich, Caviar N Champagne was fully extended late to hold off a charging Startin Something. The favored Pay the Man tired and finished third, three lengths behind Startin Something and jockey Deshawn Parker.

The running time for the 1 1/16 miles over a fast track was 1.46.62, and Caviar N Champagne returned $5.80 to win.
