Chugwater Gal
Chugwater Gal and driver-trainer Nick Giberson rolled to an easy win in Wednesday's $17,000 ISOBA Stake.
Sophomore trotting fillies stepped into the spotlight on Wednesday night as a field of nine diagonally gaited state-breds squared off in a $17,000 Illinois Standardbred Owners & Breeders Association Stake.

Fresh off a win in the Lady Ann Reed Consolation L&L DeVisser’s Chugwater Gal continued her late season surge with an impressive four-length victory in 1:57.4.

Grinding it out first over for the final five-eighths of a mile driver, Nick Giberson eased his charged alongside the pace setting Fox Valley Shannon after that filly had led the field through splits of 29.1, 58.1 & 1:28.4.

Easily trotting past the 4-5 favorite in the lane, Chugwater Gal quickly opened up an insurmountable advantage over the rest of her rivals by the mid-stretch call. Showing no signs of the breaking problems that plagued her in two of her three previous starts, the daughter of Valley Victor-Tuf Kim was on cruise control the rest of the way as she recorded her third win in 13 starts this season. Marilyn’s Lil Aggie (Dave Magee) followed the winner's every move to get the second place check while longshot Plenary (Brent Holland) finished third.

Under the patient tutelage of Giberson Chugwater Gal now boasts six wins, two seconds and seven thirds in 26 career starts with earnings of $127,841. Despite coming off that victory in her previous start, Chugwater Gal returned a hefty $15.40, $5.20 & $4.00 to her backers.
