2YO CHASING CARA Records Second Straight Placing in Belmont Stakes
Coming off a placing in Belmont’s seven-furlong Joseph A. Gimma S., CHASING CARA added a little more distance and placed in the $150,000, one mile Maid of the Mist S. The 2-year-old filly by BROKEN VOW set the pace early flanked on both sides. She still led midway round the turn, was pressured on her outside near the top of the stretch, but continued to run on with good energy down the lane to the wire. CHASING CARA finished more than eight lengths in front of the stakes-winning next horse. She also was runner-up in a Saratoga Maiden Special Weight in late August. Lifetime record: 7-0-1-2, $55,830.
