Nostalgic rallies for second in G3 Chilukki Stakes


Nostalgic added more Graded Black Type to her CV as she stayed on well to grab second in the G3 Chilukki Stakes at Churchill Downs, USA, on Saturday, 18 November.

Last season’s G3 Gazelle Stakes winner, who also finished third in the G1 Coaching Club American Oaks during a productive three-year-old season, raced in a detached last for most of the mile contest following a slow start.

Nostalgic still had significant ground to make up on the pace-setting Hot And Sultry turning in before taking closer order as Florent Geroux switched the Bill Mott-trained filly widest of all in the straight.

Hot And Sultry continued to dictate and powered to an eight-length success, with Nostalgic hitting the line strongly to take second from a wayward Oeuvre in a photo for the minor places.
