    Emerald Downs Wrap-Friday, September 6


    AUBURN, Wash. (September 6, 2013) – Chaching Pete resumed his winning ways Friday night at Emerald Downs.

    With leading rider Juan Gutierrez aboard, the 6-year-old gelding cruised to a 2 ¼ length victory over Chicks Dig Him in the $10,500 Ashbaugh Beal Challenge Purse for 3-year-olds and up at Emerald Downs.

    Chaching Pete ran six furlongs in 1:09.03 on a sloppy track and paid $3.60, $2.60 and $2.10. Bill Tollett is the trainer for owner John E. Parker.

    A Washington-bred gelding by Petersburg-Vying High, Chaching Pete has won six of his last nine starts, including three wins at the current meet.

    Chicks Dig Him, ridden by Eliska Kubinova, rallied from last to finish second and paid $3.20 and $2.10. Davos, ridden by Ronald Richard, held third place in an encouraging comeback effort and paid $4.

    City Twister, Tribaltique and Jade Road completed the order of finish.

    Chaching Pete has an overall mark of 10-6-4 in 24 starts with earnings of $59,450. Friday’s first-place check, $5,775, helped turn a tidy profit for Parker, who claimed Chaching Pete for $7,500 on August 24 and lost him Friday for $10,000 to owner/trainer Preston Boyd.
