We’ve linked you to this story above for all our Jersey Shore fans!
Yes, Spring has finally sprung at the Jersey Shore today with opening day at Monmouth Park!
Alternation (seen here) won today’s $200,000, going 1 1/8 mile GII Peter Pan Stakes over Adios Charlie by a head at Belmont Park!
Come 3rd back 4 1/2 lengths was Prime Cut and the super was filled out by Joe Vann back another 2 1/2 lengths!
Bold Deed at 31/1 set good early factions of 23.78, 47.14 and 1:11.90 with Adios Charlie in tote all the way around this 1-turn race into the stretch run. It was there that Adios Charlie took control of this race and almost held off the late running Alternation who poked his head up in time to win at the line in 1:49.53!
- Alternation would seem to be the only horse coming out of this race that would make a good fit for the Belmont Stakes next month, but his connection didn’t commit to that race, just yet!
- The connection of Adios Charlie are thinking maybe a Jim Dandy try next for him! Sounds good to us!
- Prime Cut and Joe Vann both will be looking a spot in all those other 3yo contests with the name Derby on it!
As to our picks, if you box an 6-8-4-10, exacta, tri and super, you won a sweep of all the exotic’s here today, as we did give you Prime Cut, Adios Charlie, Joe Vann and Alternation as our first four names in our race preview post!
Nice to get a 3yo race right on the money for a change!
So another Belmont Stakes prep race is in the books as Belmont Stakes looms just 4 weeks away now and who knows, maybe, we’ll get a Triple Crown winner this year! It’s been that kind of a strange year, so far!
See a race relay below!
How good is Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom, really?
His pedigree is one of a modest turf horse, but his connection are first-rate with trainer H. Graham Motion and jockey John Velazquez.
