Miss Behaviour romps in the Sorority at Monmouth
OCEANPORT, N.J. (AP) — Miss Behaviour cruised to an 8¼-length victory in the $100,000 Sorority Stakes at Monmouth Park Sunday.
Trained by Phil Schoenthal, Miss Behaviour covered the six-furlong race for 2-year-old fillies in 1:11.54. The Garry Cruise-ridden filly paid $8.20, $3.80 and $3.10 as the third-choice in the field of eight.
Yes Liz finished second and returned $3.20 and $2.60. Mallory Street came in third and paid $4.60 to show.
Favored Flay Mignon finished seventh.
“She just has so much natural speed. Just a high cruising speed,” Cruise said. “And these were no slouches in here. She’s just such a professional for a 2-year-old filly. A couple times she tugged at me asked for a little bit more and when I gave it to her she went even faster.
In the co-featured $100,000 Sapling for 2-year-old colts, Dunkin Bend rallied three-wide turning for home en route to a 1¼-length victory over Yes I’m Lucky.
Trained by Steve Asmussen, Dunkin Bend covered the six furlongs in 1:11.82 and paid $4 and $2.40 as the favorite in the field of four colts. The son of Dunkirk has won 2 of 3 career starts and earned $117,000.
“I saw two horses going to the front so I settled him just off of that,” winning jockey Ricardo Santana Jr. said “He relaxed very nice and made a good move around the turn. We were a little wide, but when I asked him he kicked on and held well.”
Run for Logistics, who had trouble shortly after the start, was third.
