As the temperatures begin to get hotter, so does Camwood. This year it took a while for the 8-year-old gelded son of Woodstock to get back on track and start hitting on all 8 cylinders. This afternoon he looked like the Camwood of old scoring a powerful wire to wire 4-length win in 1:53, the fastest mile of the year with Brandon Parker at the helm, finishing second was Trevor One followed by Prophet Blue Chip. Parker had a driving double, taking the closer with Magical Lily Bear in 1:56.2.
Kyle Dibenedetto was first away from the gate with Caviart Cherie, Beauty Is Blind also left quickly and took the 2 hole and followed Caviart Cherie around the oval through fractions of 28.1, 57.2. 1:26.1. Poppy Drayton N mounted an attempt at the leaders at the 5/8 marker but the effort stalled and she settled for third in 1:54.4, Beauty Is Blind was second. Caviart Cherie is trained by Nick Devita
