Courtly Choice Wins NYSS Consolation

Monday, October 16, 2017  By: Shawn Wiles for Monticello Raceway

 

Monticello, NY---On Monday (October 16) Monticello Raceway hosted the $400,000 New York Sire Stakes Consolations, with 8 divisions each racing for a purse of $50,000 each.


When one thinks of Sire Stake events, one thinks of hot balmy days of July and August. Today the conditions were far from the Sire Stake norm, with temps in the mid 50’s, with intermittent sun and a persistent raw wind.


Aces in Heaven (PP1) protected his position from the rail and left briskly, the post time favorite Courtly Choice (Mark MacDonald) patiently took the lead past the ¼ pole in 27.2 and tripped the following beams in 56.4, 1:25.4. and played catch me if you can.

 

Cheese Melt (Dan Dube) didn’t see the wood often during his mile, he made a huge three wide move to pass Aces In Heaven in the lane. Courtly Choice scored in 1:56.1, Cheese Melt was 2nd followed by Aces In Heaven 3rd. The son Art Major – Lady Ashlee Ann is trained by Blake Macintosh did not disappoint his faithful, returning $4.40.
