Magic Finch upsets in Distance Classic final
"She reminds me of Ezra Clem", said kennel owner Jim Abernathy in the winner’s circle of the 52nd annual Distance Classic of his stakes winner Magic Finch. "She really ran a nice race and to come back on Gazillionair was phenomenal." The Distance Classic started off with a surprise when the morning line favorite Kelsos Ace High (Lester Raines) was scratched from the event due to minor injury. Because of the late scratch a seven-dog field was presented.
Magic Finch exploded out of the box from the two post and led all the way until late in the backstretch. Uss Gazillionair (1) passed the female but she came back to steal the win back to win the stakes. Finch (Lonesome Cry x Bird A Flyin) paid $10.80 for her win over the bet favorite Mohican Mink Mae (8) clocking a speedy 37.33. Flying Masago finished a nose behind second and Midnight Light completed the superfecta. Fifth through seventh was Kiowa Sky Selma, Bow Timeless and Mohican Mink Mae. Next up is the Gold Trophy Juvenile stakes where Magic Finch is expected to be an entry as well as Sprint Classic champion Hi Noon Renegade
