Ontario-Sired, Arthur Blue Chip, Takes Saturday Night’s Preferred In Woodbine

Arthur Blue Chip powered to the top from Post 8, and once he cleared it was game over. Chris Christoforou had him parked and driving at the quarter pole in :25.3 before finding the pylons and supplying middle fractions of :54.1 and 1:23. A :27.3 final frame was just enough for the OSS grad to win by three-quarters of a length over Ellis Park in 1:50.3. Duc Dorleans was a lapped-on third.

 It was the second win of the season in five tries – and the eighth to date – for the former O’Brien Award winner. Dr. Ian Moore trains the career winner of $437,190 for the Shadow One Stable of Guelph, ON.
