Ouevre Cruises in Third Chance Stakes


STICKNEY, IL – The Third Chance Stakes, for Illinois Registered, Conceived, and/or Foaled Fillies and Mares, took place Sunday afternoon at Hawthorne course. The race was contested at six furlongs on Hawthorne’s real dirt course and carried a purse of $75,000.

All eyes were on favored Oeuvre and she didn’t disappoint. Sent off as the overwhelming favorite, her rider Orlando Mojica was confident before and during the race. Despite a slight stumble at the start, she stalked the pace early and assumed control on the turn, drawing off to win by four and three-quarters under a virtual hand ride. Ronan came along late to grab second while White Lies held on to finish third. Owned by Richard Perkins and trained Sunday by Mickey Goldfine, Oeuvre earned $45,000 for the victory, boosting her career earnings to $529,176. The victory was her 11th on her career from 19 starts.


Orlando Mojica “I had a good trip. I put him behind the horses in front of me. I knew I had a lot of horse. I tried to ride relaxed. I knew I had the best horse. I knew the scratches changed things. But I knew I had a lot of horse and she showed it. It worked out perfectly.


The covered six furlongs in 109.62 after fractions of 22:00, 45:43 and 57:28

Oeuvre paid $2.20, $2:10, $2:10

Ronan returned $8.40, $4.40

White Lies paid $3.00
