Super Chow and regular pilot Chantal Sutherland win the $100K Limehouse (Coglianese)
Gulfstream Park Press Release
HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla.— Lea Farms’ Super Chow picked up where he left off last year, sprinting to his fourth consecutive victory and third straight in a stakes in the Limehouse. Ridden by Chantal Sutherland for trainer Jorge Delgado, the Lord Nelson colt covered six furlongs in 1:09.88 over a fast main track.
Sutherland, now 4-0 on Super Chow including wins in the Bowman Mill at Keeneland and Inaugural at Tampa Bay Downs to end 2022, hustled Super Chow to the lead from Post 2, going the opening quarter-mile in 22.31 seconds pressed by Two of a Kind. Turbo, winner of the Juvenile Sprint Oct. 29 at Gulfstream, saved ground in third and moved up to second after a half in 44.95.
Super Chow came wide around the far turn and left an opening for Turbo along the inside, and continued to drift out through the stretch but dug in determinedly while racing well wide and held off Turbo by a length for his fifth win from six lifetime starts. His only loss came when he ran third in last summer’s Saratoga Special (G3), his second time out.
“The plan was to send the horse no matter what. Chantal managed to get the horse in good position,” Delgado said. “He seems to be getting better with every race. I don’t know why but when he runs here, he drifts a little bit. He [must not] like something between the three-eighths [pole] and the quarter pole. It only happens to him here, but he set good fractions and he beat a good bunch of horses.”
Delgado said upcoming targets for Super Chow include Gulfstream’s $125,000 Swale (G3) Feb. 4 or the $100,000 Hutcheson March 18.
