Brian Drazin’s Christiesborntorun took command turning for
home and held all rivals safe at bay through the stretch to capture the $50,000
allowance feature at Monmouth Park on Friday.
Trained by Jason Servis and ridden by Elvis Trujillo,
Christiesborntorun covered the five furlongs over firm turf in :55 2/5 and
returned $3.20, $2.60 and $2.60 as the odds-on choice in the field of eight
colts and geldings. Wildcat Glory, who
finished 3 ¼ lengths behind the winner, rallied to complete the $18.60 exacta
and paid $6 to place and $4.60 to show.
It was another length and a quarter back to Outstanding Hope, who
returned $6.40 to show.
Friday’s win was the second in five starts for
Christiesborntorun, a 3-year-old colt by Grand Slam out of the stakes winning
mare Chocolate Brown. The winner was
bred in Kentucky
by Dennis Drazin.
