Chapter Seven Wins $180,000 American National Aged Trot

Chapter Seven added another crown to his closet full of trophies as he romped to an easy 1:54.4 victory in the $180,000 American National Aged Trot on Saturday night, Nov. 11 at Balmoral Park.

With Tim Tetrick at the lines for trainer Linda Toscano, the 4-year-old son of Windsong’s Legacy picked up career victory 13 in 20 tries, in his final career start.

“I’d love to see this horse race as a 5-year-old because I think he could beat the 1:50 barrier,” said Tetrick. “But that’s not the plan, and he’s going on to a new phase of his life now.

“He’s tough as nails, and he’s not that big but he has a great big heart. I wanted to make sure that he went out a winner tonight, and that’s why I sat with him for as long as I did.”

Tetrick positioned Chapter Seven in third along the rail throughout opening fractions of :29.1, :58 and 1:26.1, set by the leading Run And Tell Pap (John Roberts) before storming to the lead and drawing off by 2¼ lengths with a :28.2 final quarter brush.

Swan In A Million (Trace Tetrick) got up for second, while Run And Tell Pap held on for third.

“A lot of people don’t realize that this horse had a couple of bouts of pneumonia and he’s continued to come back from that,” Tetrick said. “A lot of horses couldn’t do that.”

Owned by R.S. Gutnick of Pennsylvania, Southwind Farm of New Jersey and J&T Silva Stables of New York, Chapter Seven added the $97,200 winner’s share to his career bank account of $1,857,766.
