RACE IS A BREEDERS’ CUP ‘WIN & YOU’RE IN’ CHALLENGE RACE QUALIFIER
ARCADIA, Calif. (Oct. 8, 2022)—Although she took and awkward stutter-step leaving the gate, And Tell Me Nolies settled comfortably while mid-pack in the early stages of Saturday’s Grade II, $200,000 Chandelier Stakes at Santa Anita and rallied impressively under Ramon Vazquez to easily run down both Ice Dancing and Home Cooking turning for home en route to a comfortable three quarter length win. Trained by Peter Miller and based at San Luis Rey Downs, the 2-year-old daughter of Arrogate, who was trying two turns for the first time along with six rival juvenile fillies, got a mile and one sixteenth in 1:46.15.
A Breeders’ Cup “Win & You’re In” Challenge Race qualifier, the Chandelier winner thus earns a fees-paid berth into the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Nov. 4 at Keeneland.
A 6 ½ furlong maiden winner in her second start Aug. 14 at Del Mar, And Tell Me Nolies came off an upset win in the Grade I Del Mar Debutante Sept. 10 and was overlayed today at 8-1 off of her morning line of 3-1 and paid $18.80, $6.80 and $3.80.
Owned by Peter Redekop B.C., Ltd, And Tell Me Nolies, who is out of the Exchange Rate mare Be Fair, has now won three in-a-row, all with Vazquez aboard, who posted his second win on today’s card. With the winner’s share of $120,000, And Tell Me Nolies increased her earnings to $352,800.
Off at 24-1 with Juan Hernandez up, Uncontrollable rallied well for the place and paid $14.60 and $5.00 while finishing 4 ¾ lengths in front of the well-fancied Justique.
An impressive first-out maiden winner on July 31, Justique was heavily favored at 6-5 with Victor Espinoza but never threatened from last and returned $2.60 to show.
