Crocodile Charlie Wins Ocala Flame Handicap

Crocodile Charlie, at 9-1, unleashed an outside stretch rally and won by a  length over 4-5 favorite Benefactor in Friday’s $50,000 Ocala Flame Handicap Gulfstream Park.
Trained by Rohan Crichton, Crocodile Charlie stalked the pace set by Coronado Again and pressed by Benefactor before kicking in through the stretch under Edgard Zayas  in the 6 ½-furlong overnight handicap for 3-year-olds.

The son of Adios Charlie ran the distance in 1:17.03 over a racing surface labeled ‘good.’ Benefactor held second under Tyler Gaffalione, a neck in front of 2-1 second choice Quinientos, who was another neck ahead of Chatiment in the six-horse field.

The win was the  second in five  career  starts for  Chatiment.   Crichton owns the  colt in   partnership  with Span Investments.
