Caviart Cherie was a 1:53 winner in the Friday feature.

Out-leaving her six inside foes, Caviart Cherie made an easy lead, pocketing eight-holer Magic Forces (George Brennan) and setting soft early intervals of :28 and :57.3.

Rockstar Angel A (Eric Goodell) tried it first-up from fourth, going nowhere fast. That took out any semblance of an outer flow, including tepid 2-1 favorite Delightfulmemphisn (Dan Dube). Meanwhile, Caviart Cherie remained the leader in and out of a 1:25 three-quarters, taking a 1-1/2 length lead off the final turn.

She held sway, whipping an angling-out Magic Forces by a half-length in 1:53. Vorst (Brent Holland), Change The Rulz N (Mark MacDonald) and Made Of Jewels AS (Joe Bongiorno) -- none of whom left the cones -- completed the cashers.

For third choice Caviart Cherie, a 4-year-old daughter of Well Said owned by Joe P Racing and trained by William Adamczyk, it was her 11th win in 26 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $78.50, the triple returned $423.50 and the superfecta paid $4,304.
