Chasing the Prize Takes the $50,000 Claiming Crown Express

Julian Leparoux exhibiting exquisite timing rallies in deep stretch with favored Chasing the Prize to clip Norjac in the $50,000 Claiming Crown Express. As speed held up early, it's collapsing to a degree mid card here. Fractions in this one, however, were :21.4 and 45 flat set by Stormin Sox and really set up well for a closing horse. Chasing the Prize usually doesn't rally from that far back, but Leparoux, sensing the quick fractions, settled him back a bit further than usual and swept the tiring field late. Outstanding ride.
