Former Sprint Champ Takes Playfair Dash

Two-time sprint champion Che Meza took positive steps toward a third title Saturday when he won the $5,200 Valentine Handicap at Playfair Race Course.

Ridden by leading jockey Lane Rennaker, Che Meza posted the fastest time of the Spokane racing season by running the Playfair Course of about 6-1/2 furlongs in 1:17 1/5. The 7-year-old gelding, the track’s top sprinter in 1994 and 1995, paid $3.60 to win.

Mantis rallied to finish second. Baffalo Soldier ran third.

One fan took home the entire Twin Trifecta pot of $16,362.40 by selecting the first three finishers in the eighth and ninth races. , DataTimes
