Chinglish wins James W. Murphy Stakes

May 21, 2011|By Sun Staff reports

Chinglish, ridden by Animal Kingdom jockey John Velazquez, won the $100,000 James W. Murphy Stakes, edging Humble and Hungry and almost three lengths.

Trained by Mark Hennig, Chinglish paid $19.60.

"I was pretty confident when I saw him going around the first turn, because he was a lot closer than he's beein in some races," Hennig said. "He'd been a bit of a clown in his early races, but the blinkers helped with that."
