Devon Dat Cash takes the Portland Meadows Championship Bonus Challenge

Devon Dat Cash and Luis Torres had to work every yard of the 440 yard $13,330 Portland Meadows Championship Bonus Challenge, but in the end the 7 year old veteran put his nose in front at the wire. Sent off as the 9/5 favorite in the full field of ten, Devon Dat Cash got off to a good start today and battled bravely, having to outduel stable-mate Current Sea and Eyez On Brimmer to win by a head. Current Sea finished in second, just a neck in front of Eyez on Brimmer who ran third.
