Email

Champali edged clear in the final strides to win the $50,000 Turfway Prevue Stakes for 3-year-olds by a nose over the previously unbeaten Great Notion. Ridden by James Lopez, Champali pressured Great Notion from the outset and gradually worked his way past in the stretch. He ran 6 1/2 furlongs in the mud in 1:17.53 and paid $4.60.

Champali is 4-0-0 in five starts and has earned $155,874.
