Big Sur Splashes Home in Majestic Light

New Monmouth Park logo
Kasey K Racing & Brier Creek Farm LLC’s Big Sur took command right from the start and held off all challengers to give trainer Ramon Moya and his son, jockey Ramon Moya, a victory in Saturday’s $75,000 Majestic Light Stakes at Monmouth Park.

Over the sloppy going, Big Sur splashed home a length and a quarter winner after stepping the mile and 70 yards in 1:42 flat.  The winner returned $20.20, $5.60 and $3.60 in the field of five colts and geldings.  Spring Hill Farm and 2011 Belmont Stakes winner Ruler On Ice finished in a dead-heat for second.  Spring Hill Farm paid $2.60 and $2.80 and completed a $40.20 exacta, while Ruler On Ice paid $2.40 and $2.60 and rounded out a $33.80 exacta.  Odds-on favorite Buffum failed to fire, finishing last.

“The owner gave me this horse about two months ago,” said the winning trainer.  “He’s been training great and we thought we would take our shot here.  We were going to the lead no matter what.  Speed had been doing well all day.  He set some quick fractions, so he didn’t steal it, he had to earn it.”

A 5-year-old gelding by Malibu Moon out of the St. Jovite mare St Lucinda, Big Sur sports a record of 5-5-9 from 28 starts.
