Sent postward as the longest shot on the board at odds of 19-1, Chancey Lady caught everyone off guard Friday night as she rallied from third over to win the $32,000 Mares Invitational Pace in her first start back at the Meadowlands in over a month.

The O’Brien Award winning Camluck mare, with Tim Tetrick in the bike, dropped back to seventh from a Post 6 start while Four Starz Melody (George Brennan) darted across the track from the outside position to post a :26.3 opening quarter. As Four Starz Melody cleared, race favourite and last week’s mild upset winner Run On Luck (Andy Miller) charged the leader and took over en route to the :55.4 half-mile mark.

Meanwhile, the backfield began to come alive with Tug River Princess (John Campbell) angling out from fourth providing Knock Three Times (Ron Pierce) and the trailing Chancey Lady with cover.

Three-quarters was up in 1:24.3 and Run On Luck rounded the final turn with Tug River Princess trying to chip away at her lead, but the pair couldn’t hold off Chancey Lady, who surged to a 2-1/4 length score in 1:52.2 with a :27-second final quarter. Lr Dancing Dream (Brian Sears) split horses to get up for second with Knock Three Times rounding out the top three.

Chancey Lady returned $40.80 to win. She is trained by Mark Kesmodel for the Estate of Niele A Jiwan of Surrey, B.C. and has won three of 10 starts this season, including the Cape & Cutter Series Final in February. Chancey Lady now boasts $95,700 in earnings this year and over $1.3 million lifetime.

Pick Six Carryover Climbs To $284,688

A trio of long shots piloted by Tyler Buter helped propel the Pick Six carryover to $284,688 for Meadowlands Racetrack’s Saturday night card.

Buter opened the Friday Pick Six with a hat trick of double-digit winners: Spectacular Cam ($94.40) in race four, Dont Know Chip ($15.20) in race five and Park Avenue ($24.80) in race six. A leading driver on the Chicago circuit, the 24-year-old Michigan native shifted his tack to the East Coast this year and has been successfully competing at the Meadowlands, Pocono and Yonkers.

The Meadowlands Pick Six was last hit Friday, April 2. A nine-day carryover produced a $131,599 payout on Saturday, February 6, 2010. The record payoff is $193,384, hit after a 10-day carryover and record $1.3 million pool on April 4, 2009.

A $1 base wager, the Pick Six begins in race four. First race Saturday night is 7 p.m. For Saturday night selections, check out the handicapper blogs.
