Cash In Watsu beat the chalk, and then some, with her speedy upset victory in Friday night's featured ninth race at Vernon Downs.
With Jimmy Whittemore sitting in for owner and trainer Darwin La Clair, Cash In Watsu got geared up from fourth in the early going and charged into contention entering the final quarter. Just a half-length back entering the final furlong, the determined 5-year-old mare caught and passed the pace-setting Steuben Lone Pine to post a career-best 1:56.1 triumph. With the three-quarter-length tally, the bay daughter of Cash Hall-Watsu made the tote-board shine with a $51.50 win payoff, and secured her second score of the 23-program meeting and 13th all-time victory.
The win gave Whittemore his third double of the track's 60th season. (Vernon Downs)
