Lucky Chappy tops Grade III Kent Stakes
Wilmington, Del., September 19, 2011 — Team Valor International’s Lucky Chappy will be seeking his first victory in North America when he faces 10 rivals in the $200,000 Grade III Kent Stakes at Delaware Park this Saturday. The mile-and-a-eighth turf test is for 3-year-olds.
Since breaking his maiden and following with a stakes score in Italy last year, Lucky Chappy has posted six solid efforts stateside without a victory. In his most recent, the Irish-bred conditioned by H. Graham Motion ran third in the mile-and-an-eighth Grade Saranac Stakes at Saratoga on September 2. In the Saranac, the son of High Chaparral closed from 18-lengths behind to finish 1½-lengths behind winner Unbridled Command.
