Railee Possible wires field in Pompano open
« Return to News
Driven from post five by Dan Clements, the Florida-bred son of Anythings Possible wasted little time powering his way to the front, claiming the top spot on the first turn before cutting out fractions of :28.1, :58.2, and 1:28.
Railee Possible entered the stretch with a 1 1/2-length advantage over the pocket-sitting Battleshoe Victor (Wally Hennessey), and was unwavering down the lane to hold off that rival while pulling clear in the final yards to prevail by two lengths at the wire.
Railee Possible returned $7, $4.40, and $2.10 for the victory. Battleshoe Victor paid $3.80 and $2.20 for second, while wagering favorite Guy Gets Girl (Bruce Ranger) brought in $2.20 for third.
Owned by Frank and Inge Smith of Deerfield Beach, and trained by Veral Bowman, Railee Possible has prevailed in 11 of 25 starts this year, with a seasonal bankroll of $92,780 and lifetime earnings of $211,252.
The 3-year-old gelding Chevie Kodiak notched his second career victory on Monday when finding the wire first in a $5,500 non-winners pace to remain perfect in two lifetime starts.
Starting from post two with Ranger at the lines, Chevie Kodiak ($5) powered to the front as the field passed the grandstand for the first time, and at that point the race was essentially over as the gelding never faced a true challenge en route to a strong 1 3/4-length victory in 1:57.
Owned by Mark Rorabeck and trained by Mike Deters, Chevie Kodiak also prevailed in his pari-mutuel debut on October 6 when defeating maidens by 2 1/4 lengths in 1:57.1.
Chevie Kodiak, a son of Cole Muffler, out of the Sportsmaster mare Chevie Value, is a full-brother to stakes winner Chevie Cash, who prevailed in 16 of 36 starts during his career, including 12 of 16 as a juvenile, and owned a lifetime mark of 1:50.4 with $265,078 in career earnings. (Pompano Park)
