Berkley Packer rode High On Chablis to a clear 2 1/2-length victory in Tuesday's $26,648 AQHA Canterbury Distance Challenge at Canterbury Park.

Prepped by Clint Crawford for owners Jerry Blackmon, Mike Schau, and Connie Nobles, High On Chablis made 870 yards in :46.336. The 5-year-old High Rate Of Return gelding earned $13,857, and a berth in the October 24, $100,000 Cox Ranch Distance Challenge Championship (G1) at Albuquerque Downs.

High On Chablis was sent to post as the 2-1 favorite in the field of five and returned a $6.20 win mutuel. Edelman, Summerhills Hero, The Runaway Favorite, and Jess A Final Diva completed the order of finish.
