WILMINGTON, Del., (Aug.) 25, 2021 — California-bred Cashing Big Checks, a graduate of the CTBA’s January Sale, notched her first career victory in Wednesday’s restricted $50,000 Blue Hen Stakes for 2-year-old fillies at Delaware Park.
The 2-year-old daughter of Mr. Big is out of the Indian Charlie mare Palisadesprincess, was bred by George Krikorian, is owned by Troy Johnson & Jagger Inc. and is trained by Jamie Ness.
The California-bred won by a nose over Mama G’s Wish with Xavier Perez. It was 9 ¼-lengths farther back to the 3-to-5 favorite in the field of four, My Boss with Daniel Centeno, in third.
Cashing Big Checks covered the five and a half furlongs in 1:05.38 over a fast main track.
In her only other career outing, she finished second in a five furlong maiden at Delaware Park on August 4th.
“She gave me everything today,” said winning jockey Jaime Rodriguez. “She kept fighting all the way to end and she gave me everything in the end.”
