OCEANPORT, NJ – Monmouth Park honored New Jersey-breds with all 10 of Sunday’s races restricted to horses from the Garden State, and three runners found stakes success: Prendimi, Liz’s Cable Girl, and Royal Urn.
Prendimi kicked off the stakes action with an exciting, hard-fought victory by a head at 3/1 over the 3/5 favorite Golden Brown in the $125,000 Charles Hesse III Handicap. It was 14 lengths back to Love Is Your Name in third. So Hot, Ashley’s Hope, and Cheddar Chub completed the order of finish in the 1 1/16-mile fast dirt route.
Jorge Vargas, Jr., piloted the 5-year-old Dance with Ravens gelding to his first victory of the year and improved his record to 22-5-7-4 with $342,020 earned. Luis Carvajal, Jr., trains for owner/breeder G. J. Stable.
Prendimi returned $8.20 to win, $3 to place, and $2.10 to show. Golden Brown brought back $2.20 to place and $2.10 to show, while Love Is Your Name paid $2.10 to show.
Two races later, TEC Racing’s Liz’s Cable Girl won her second title in the $100,000 Eleven North Handicap, a 6-furlong fast dirt dash. Sent away as the 3/5 favorite, she outdueled the defending champion Blank Paige in the stretch to win by 1 length. Chubofftheoldblock, Pretti Tricki, Achieving Glory, Crazy Daisy, and Prancing Warrior completed the order of finish.
Antonio Gallardo was in the irons for trainer Tom Amoss. The 6-year-old Cable Boy mare, who finished second last year and fifth in 2017, also won this race in 2018 and improved her overall record to 27-13-2-4 with $520,475 earned. TEC Racing purchased her for $60,000 this past January.
Liz’s Cable Girl returned $3.20 to win, $2.40 to place, and $2.20 to show. Blank Paige brought back $4.80 to place and $4.20 to show, while Chubofftheoldblock paid $3.80 to show.
Royal Urn ended the day’s stakes action with the biggest runaway effort of the three, clearing off by nearly 4 lengths to win the $100,000 New Jersey Breeders Handicap. The 3/5 favorite was never in doubt and completed the 6-furlong fast dirt dash well ahead of Chublicious, Regally Irish, Smithwick’s Spice, Amatteroftime, Brother Chub, and Cozy Lover.
“Jersey” Joe Bravo was aboard the Kelly Breen trainee. After failing to win any of his 10 starts last year, Royal Urn has now won 2 of his past 3, including the John J. Reilly Handicap in early July. The 4-year-old Kantharos colt improved his record to 18-4-2-2 with $222,750 earned for owner/breeder John Bowers, Jr., who races under the noms de course of Roseland Farm Stable.
Royal Urn returned $3.20 to win, $2.60 to place, and $2.20 to show. Chublicious brought back $8.40 to place and $5.60 to show, while Regally Irish paid $5.80 to show.
