Chanac takes the Mayor's Cup
Chanac and Tad Skaggs rallied from just off of the pace to score a 12/1 upset win in the $8,800 Mayor’s Cup at Portland Meadows on Monday afternoon. The second longest shot in the race, Chanac sat behind favored Eyes Movin (2/1) and Lucky Royal Rabbit (4/1) who both sped off early on and contested hot fractions. Lucky Royal Rabbit cornered wide however as did Eyes Movin and both Chanac and CR Isle Be Baq snuck inside of them at the head of the lane. Chanac prevailed though in a long stretch battle with CR Isle Be Baq, winning by a nose in a final time of 47.31 seconds. CR Isle Be Baq finished second with Lucky Royal Rabbit ending up third.
Chanac is owned by Danni Yarbor and trained by Joel Yarbor. The 4 year old was bred in the state of Oregon by Donald M. Hagglund.
