CITY BY THE BAY PREVAILS IN SEATTLE HANDICAP,
EDGES CHU AND YOU TO REMAIN UNBEATEN
AUBURN, Wash. (June 1) – California shipper City by the Bay remained undefeated Sunday with a brisk three-quarter-length victory over a stubborn Chu and You in the $50,000 Seattle Handicap for 3-year-old fillies at Emerald Downs.
Ridden by Juan Hernandez at 119 lbs, City by the Bay ran 6 ½ furlongs in 1:14.76 and paid $3.60, $2.60 and $2.10. The winner, who was making her first start since an 8 ¾-length victory in the $100,000 Barretts Debutante last September, is trained by Billy Morey for Martin Bach of Danville, Calif. and Jack Owens of Modesto, Calif.
Now 3-for-3 lifetime, City by the Bay earned $27,500 to push her bankroll to $97,670. Based at Golden Gate Fields, the Kentucky-bred daughter of City Zip has notched wins at Santa Rosa, Fairplex Park and Emerald Downs.
