Cuz She Can dominant and decisive in Chester distaff
from Harrah's Chester publicity department

Brushing to the front and continuing to carve out an exacting pace,
Cuz She Can ($3.40) proved herself a never-in-doubt winner in Thursday
(June 3) afternoon's $32,000 Mares Open Handicap pace at Harrah's
Chester, turning in a 1:50.0 effort.

The five-year-old Cambest mare floated off the gate, tracking two-wide
behind Fox Valley Topaz (David Miller) and Omen Hanover (Jim
Pantaleano) before making her move to the front past a :26.3 first
quarter.  Once she cleared the front, driver Yannick Gingras had no
worries about Cuz She Can from then on:  "Once she gets to the front,
she's really hard to get past.  Sometimes the problem is getting her
there.  She's more of a grinder than a sprinter, but once she gets to
the lead, she's real tough."

Cuz She Can led the field through middle fractions of :54.4 and
1:22.0--a grueling :55.2 middle half--while facing absolutely no
pressure.  Teenage Paige (George Napolitano), who reeled off two
straight 1:50.0 wins in her last two starts, was nowhere to be found,
gapped third-over on the backstretch.  Meanwhile, Cuz She Can sprinted
away from the pocket-sitting Fox Valley Topaz in the last 300 yards,
prevailing by a decisive 2-3/4 lengths in 1:50.  Omen Hanover held
third, while the first-over Ireneonthemove (Corey Callahan) flattened
late, finishing fourth.

Gingras concluded:  "She's racing great right now.  She's on top of
her game, and she's been like that for a couple months."

Ron Burke trains Cuz She Can for Bulletproof Enterprises.

Earlier in the card, the Panhellenic Stable Corp.'s Dink Adoo ($10.80)
set a track record for eleven-year-old trotters, just nosing out
Master Begonia in a 1:53.4 mile.  In doing so, the veteran trotter
notched his 66th lifetime win.
