TALLY UP TALLIES PARADISE CREEK VICTORY
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. (Sept. 11, 2006) – Nancy A. Vanier and Cartwright Thoroughbreds IV’s Tally Up hugged the rail en route to a half-length victory in the $42,000 Paradise Creek Stakes on Monday at Arlington Park. Chris Emigh rode the Brian Williamson-trained son of Service Stripe who was clocked in 1:50.33 for the nine furlongs over a track rated “sloppy.” Originally carded to be raced at a mile and a sixteenth on the turf, the Paradise Creek was moved to main track and run at the distance of a mile and an eighth following more than a day of rain.
“The rail has been good today and I had a lot of speed,” Emigh said. “They say if you like the mud that you’ll like the turf, so there may still be turf in the cards for this one.”
He earned $25,200 for the win, his fourth in 12 starts, and his bankroll now stands at $144,441.
Like An Eagle, the 8-5 betting favorite, rallied to finish second in the six-horse field, 3 ¼ lengths clear of third-place finisher Charley Tango. Chin High, Mr Playwright and Reverential completed the order of finish.
Tally Up paid $8, $3.40 and $2.60. Like an Eagle paid $3.20 and $2.40. Charley Tango paid $2.80.
