The betting for this year’s Chicago Stakes was dominated by two former Grade 1 winners Society and Matareya with many expecting the race to develop into a match between the pair.

Any hopes of a close race were quickly dismissed with a superb front-running ride from Society and jockey Tyler Gaffalione. 

Happy to dictate the fractions, Gaffalione produced a brilliant ride that constantly tested the legs of Society’s rivals. Stretching clear as she hit home turn, Society was still cruising whilst all of her rivals were hard at it.

With nothing looking like chasing her down, the only question would be how far she would win. Still full of running as she hit the home straight, there was no let-up of pace and she would go on to win by ten lengths. A truly devastating performance her victory was not only the fastest time ever recorded in the race but she also set a new track record in the process. 

Drifaros was able to finish in a distant second, with Matareya running a poor race back in third.
