Send Me This Wagon Wins $28,825 Canterbury Distaff Bonus Challenge

Send Me This Wagon

Send Me This Wagon survived a less-than-perfect trip to win the $28,825 Canterbury Distaff Bonus Challenge by a neck Sunday at Canterbury Park. The 4-year-old filly set the track record last year by covering 400 yards in 19.583 seconds. On Sunday she finished the same distance in 20.216 seconds. The prohibitive favorite, ridden by Jorge Torres and trained by Stacy Charette-Hill, paid $2.60 to win.

Send Me This Wagon, breaking from the outside post in a six-horse field, lost her footing at the start and was brushed by Xoom.

“We were brushed and pushed outside,” Torres said. “But the farther she went, the stronger she got.”

Send Me This Wagon, owned by the trainer and her husband Randy Hill, has now won six of 11 career races and $94,772 in purses.

“I thought it was over when she fell,” Charette-Hill said. “Her back end slipped coming out of the gate. We are fortunate to have a filly like her.”

Call as Maybe finished second and Xoom was third.

Send Me This Wagon is expected to compete in the Distaff Challenge at Prairie Meadows in September.
