Mystery Chase springs 15-1 upset in Chester Open
from Harrah's Chester publicity department

Not even the likes of newcomers Pilgrims Toner and Atochia—who took
the lion’s share of the betting action—could hold off Mystery Chase
($32.80) in Sunday (May 16) afternoon’s $32,000 Open Handicap Pace at
Harrah’s Chester Casino and Racetrack.

The five-year-old son of Real Artist took well off a fast pace, which
saw Pilgrims Toner (Yannick Gingras) strung out by Blatantly Good
(Richard Silverman) on the first turn, roughly nine lengths of a :26.2
first quarter as the field settled into single-file formation.
Passing the judge on the first occasion, Pilgrims Toner met immediate
pressure from Booze Cruzin (Tony Morgan), and George Napolitano tipped
Mystery Chase second-over to move much closer to a pressured :54.4
half mile.

Stalking a nip-and-tuck battle up the backstretch, Mystery Chase
continued to inch closer approaching the far turn, pushing three-wide
on the far turn and taking over the lead with an eighth to go from a
weakening Pilgrims Toner.  With Atochia (Tim Tetrick) tipping off the
back of Mystery Chase at head-stretch, the eventual winner was pushed
on to find more in the last strides, but responded in earnest to the
late pressure, prevailing in 1:50.2.  Atochia was a game second, while
Blatantly Good rallied up the open stretch to claim third.

Trainer Donnie Russell co-owns Mystery Chase with the Baron Racing Stable.
