LAUREL, MD. 03-16-12---Milwaukee Chief and Arctic Raven provided a thrilling finish to today’s seventh race at Laurel Park, hitting the wire together in a dead heat.

Milwaukee Chief appeared to be the winner of the $13,000 claimer after gaining the lead late but Arctic Raven loomed on the outside and closed determinedly and was up at the wire as the duo crossing the line simultaneously. Let Me Be Frank was just a nose behind the winners in third.

Milwaukee Chief, a seven-year-old son of Milwaukee Brew trained by Juan Vazquez and ridden by Horacio Karamanos, paid $6.20.

Arctic Raven paid $14.20. The son of Dance With Ravens is conditioned by Daniel O’Ryan. J.D. Acosta was aboard the four-year-old gelding, who visited the winners’ circle for the first time since September 9, 2011.
