Dialed In’s classy mare Chalon won her second consecutive stakes race of the summer on Sunday at Monmouth Park with a front-running victory in the Incredible Revenge S.

Now a seven-time stakes winner, six-year-old Chalon has earned $971,895 for Lael Stables and trainer Arnaud Delacour.

Chalon led the entire 5 1/2-furlongs over the sloppy going, stopping the timer in 1:05.32 while defeating Bronx Beauty, who herself is a nine-time stakes winner, by a length.

I know her very well. I have won a couple of good races with her but this is the first time she wanted to lead this early,” said her jockey Paco Lopez. “It was a short field and we weren’t sure about the slop so I just let her go. She handled it very well. She’s a nice mare. Very consistent. She tries very hard all the time.”

The hope is we can get her a graded stakes win,” added Delacour. “So we will point her to the (Grade 2) Honorable Miss at Saratoga (on Sept. 6).”

Chalon was bred by J. K. and Linda Griggs and sold for $110,000 at the 2016 Barretts March 2-year-olds in Training sale. She is Dialed In’s second-leading lifetime earner, behind only $5.5 million earner Gunnevera.
