Description: Utley (KY) B , H, foaled March 10, 2008 (Smart Strike - No Matter What, by Nureyev) was expertly ridden by jockey Edgar Prado to win the 1 1/16 miles $400K Grade II Dixie Stakes at Pimlico Race Course May 17, 2014. Jockey Prado broke Utley smartly from post nine and took up a vacant spot along the rail for most of the trip. Fredericksburg was out in front with Chamois in close attendance around the Clubhouse turn and down the backstretch. Hey Leroy, Charming Kitten, and Nutello were stalking those two into the far turn as Utley was getting into gear looking for racing room. Prado swung him to the outside as they straightened for home and was coming in full flight to get the lead inside the 1/16th marker and won by a length at the finish. Chamois ran courageously to get nipped for 2nd by Hey Leroy by a nose. Utley won his first stakes race in a career that has taken him from Great Britain to France, Dubai, and the USA. His race record is 6-2-4 and he has earned $448,008. Utley was bred and is owned by Augustin Stable and he is being trained by Jonathan Sheppard. Drawing by Daily Racing Funnies ®.
