YONKERS, NY, Friday, April 20, 2018—Caviart Cherie (Brent Holland, $39.60) was a shrewdly-driven upsetter, winning Friday night’s (Apr. 20th) $30,000 Filly and Mare Preferred Handicap Pace.

Making the first lead from her assigned post position No. 5, Caviart Cherie relented to Wishy Washy Girl (Jason Bartlett) before a 27-second opening quarter-mile.

After a soft :301 second subsection (:57.1 half), pole-assigned Betabcool N (Joe Bongiorno) moved from third, though not much. Jewel Lehigh A (Scott Zeron) was stuck behind that dullard, the tow backpedaling before a 1:25.1 three-quarters.

Meanwhile, Freakonomics (Eric Goodell) and 17-10 choice Carobbean Pacetry (Jordan Stratton) both ducked back inside, awaiting room and running out of real estate.

Wishy Washy Girl owned a length lead into the lane, but Caviart Cherie—last seen here winning last month’s final of the Petticoat Pacing Series—edged out and edged by. The latter beat the former by a half-length in 1:55. Freakonomics and Carobbean Pacetry were a belated third and fourth, respectively, with Jewel Lehigh A and Betabcool N bringing up the rear of the half-dozen. 

For rank outsider Caviart Cherie, a 4-year-old daughter of Well Said owned by Joe P Racing and trained by Matias Ruiz, it was her eighth win in 13 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $205.50, with the triple returning $700.
