In the day's biggest rout, Michael and Amy Feuerborn's cat-quick Chu and You drew off for a seven-length victory in the $50,000 Northwest Farms Stakes for Washington-bred 2-year-old fillies. Ridden by Juan Gutierrez at 119 lbs, Chu and You ran six furlongs in 1 minute, 9.42 seconds and paid $3.60, $2.60 and $2.10.

In the day’s biggest rout, Michael and Amy Feuerborn’s cat-quick Chu and You drew off for a seven-length victory in the $50,000 Northwest Farms Stakes for Washington-bred 2-year-old fillies.

Ridden by Juan Gutierrez at 119 lbs, Chu and You ran six furlongs in 1 minute, 9.42 seconds and paid $3.60, $2.60 and $2.10. Robbie Baze trains the winner, who has yet to trail a horse at any point in her four career races.

A Washington-bred by You and I-Bronze Charmer, Chu and You earned $25,000 to push her ledger to 4-4-0-0-$84,249. And with easy victories in the Northwest Farms, Angie C and Barbara Shinpoch to her credit, Chu and You is a lock to win honors as the meet’s Top 2-Year-Old Filly.

Sprinting clear in the opening strides, Chu and You opened a commanding advantage while setting fractions of :21.94, :44.74 and :56.78. She was five lengths clear into the stretch, and widened her advantage to the wire.

“It’s too easy because she does almost everything for you,” Gutierrez said. “She made me work less. She’s really too good. I don’t know what else I can say, she does everything right. She’s all professional.”

Sunpenny, ridden by David G. Lopez at 119, rallied from seventh to finish second and returned $5.80 and $4. Belladiva, ridden by Leonel Camacho-Flores at 119, held on well for third and paid $5.80.
