Streamline, Cammack Take State-Bred Turf Wins At Hawthorne

State-bred turf runners were featured on Saturday at Hawthorne with a pair of stakes returning to the schedule. A field of eight was featured in the Illini Princess Handicap for fillies and mares while nine males were sent postward in the Buck’s Boy Handicap.

At the start of the Illini Princess, nobody seemed to want the lead as Lovely Loyree inherited the front end for jockey Victor Santiago through the slow opening quarter over the firm turf course in 25:59. Tracked by longshot Cowgirl Callie and Streamline, Lovely Loyree passed the half in a leisurely :52.14 and three quarters in 1:16.58. Turning into the stretch, the running began as Santiago got after Lovely Loyree, briefly opening up a length advantage. Jockey Edgar Perez got to work on Streamline, splitting horses and moving to challenge the leader while Prado’s Sweet Ride began to close as well. A long stretch battle went to the wire as Streamline prevailed by a head over Lovely Loyree, with Prado’s Sweet Ride just another neck back in third. The final time for the 1 1/16 miles was 1:46.01.

With the $32,400 winner’s share, graded stakes winner Streamline moved her career earnings to $906,779. Streamline is owned by Nancy Vanier, and Cartwright Thoroughbreds V, LLC and trained by Brian Williamson.

The Buck’s Boy Handicap was a competitive field of nine as Senor Blanco was scratched this morning. Blue Sky Kowboy was sent away as the lukewarm choice for trainer Michele Boyce and jockey Julip Felix.

Getting away quickly from the gate was Goneghost and jockey Chris Emigh in the first turf try of Goneghost’s career as he passed the opening quarter in :25.04 while track by longshot In the Chamber. On the backside, In the Chamber ranged up alongside Goneghost as the duo hit the half together in :50.51. The pair quickened in the turn, covering three quarters in 1:13.61 as both Memory Bank and Cammack began to pick up the chase. In the lane, Goneghost put away In the Chamber and opened up a five length advantage while Cammack swung to the center of the course for jockey Jose Lopez and was full of run. Nearing the wire, Goneghost gave way as Cammack ran by, followed closely by Memory Bank. At the finish, Cammack won by a half-length over Memory Bank while Goneghost held on to finish a game third. The final time for the 1 1/16 miles over the firm turf was 1:44.11.

Owned by Team Block of David Block and trained by his son Chris, Cammack earned $32,850 for the victory, bringing his career earnings to $440,313
