Tequilita Wins Charles Town Oaks at Charles Town Races
The $300,000 G3 Charles Town Oaks was contested Saturday, September 23 at Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races in Cicero, Illinois - a seven-furlong dirt test for three-year-old fillies. Dorothy Matz's homebred 7-2 second choice Tequilita rallied late and prevailed by 1 1/4 lengths over a game 75-1 longshot Yorkiepoo Princess who finished a very good second. Overture closed to capture third at 5-1 odds in the field of 10 while Berned, Astrollinthepark, 6-5 favorite Shimmering Aspen, Munny Spunt, R Angel Katelyn, Downtown Mama and Chanel's Legacy, who was eased and eventually vanned off completed the order of finish. Sine Wave, Stay Fond, Stormy Embrace and Who's the Lady scratched.
