Irish War CrySarah Andrew

3rd-Delaware, $43,350, Msw, 7-23, 2yo, f, 5 1/2f, 1:06.99, ft, 3 3/4 lengths.
PRINCESS CHESSIE (f, 2, Irish War Cry–Sensible Shoes, by Songandaprayer) became her freshman sire (by Curlin)'s first winner with this 18-1 longshot rally from the back of the field. The David Bloom homebred settled off the pace early in sixth, improved her position through the bend, and launched a wide bid that carried her over the top late by 3 3/4 lengths. The 9-5 favorite Rowsie Express (Golden Lad) followed that one in for minor awards. Princess Chessie is the most recent winning addition for her dam, followed by a yearling and 2022 filly by Holy Boss. Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $24,000.
