Watsdachances Wins Beverly D Stakes
At Arlington Park in the US, 5YO Irish-bred mare Watsdachances (Diamond Green-High Finance, by Entrepreneur) registered her first top-flight victory when scoring by a neck for trainer Chad Brown in the US$700,000 Gr1 Beverly D Stakes (9.5 furlongs) for 3YO+ f&m, over 6YO mare Stephanie's Kitten (Kitten's Joy-Unfold the Rose, by Catienus) and 5YO UK-bred mare Secret Gesture (Galileo-Shastye, by Danehill). Watsdachances, who was promoted to first after Secret Gesture was disqualified for causing interference in the stretch, took her record to 6 wins (including the Gr3 Gallorette Handicap) and 8 placings (including the Gr1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf) from 18 starts for over US$900,000 earnings.
