Chace The Great wins Thoroughbred Hall of Fame Stakes

CHACE THE GREAT on Saturday made every post a winning one to land the 1200-metre Thoroughbred Hall of Fame Stakes at Caymanas Park.

The speedy four-year-old chestnut, offering odds of 5-2,  briefly disputed the lead with ROYAL ASSAULT before racing clear of his six rivals to win by a length and a half, clocking 1:12.1.

LOTTERY TICKET,  outsped down the backstretch, ran on best along the rail to finish second. PROLIFIC PRINCESS stayed on for third at odds of 8-1.

POKER STAR, the 6-5 favourite,  finished fourth with Omar Walker.

CHACE THE GREAT closed a double for trainer Dwight Chen and jockey Jevvanne Erwin on the 11-race card.

Erwin's first winner was MARKET SENSATION in the fifth for Chen to share riding honours with apprentice Dane Dawkins.

The two-kilo claiming apprentice won aboard the two longest shots of the day - 21-1 LATE N DRAFTY in the eighth and closed the programme in a driving finish with 7-1 chance RAY RAY,  beating CLEARLY OURS.

Racing continues at Caymanas Park on Saturday with the feature being the 12-furlong Jamaica Derby.
