Colony Club Upsets Fort Monmouth

Alexandra S. White’s Colony Club sat off the early pace before moving strongly through the lane to wear down pacesetter Ahvee’s Destiny in the $65,000 Fort Monmouth Stakes at Monmouth Park on Saturday.

 

With a crowd of 11,571 looking on, Colony Club covered the 5 ½ furlongs over firm turf in 1:02 flat and returned $23.60, $9.80 and $6.  Ahvee’s Destiny held for second, a half-length back, and paid $6.40 and $4.60.  The exacta returned $154.60.  It was another length back to Cherry on the Top, who paid $6.20 to show.

 

“Everything worked out perfectly,” said White, who also conditions Colony Club.  “She’ll go back to Maryland.  We train off the farm down there.  I’m sure she’ll be back at Monmouth for another race like this one.”

 

The victory proved extra special for White, as it was the trainer’s first stakes victory.  It was also a special win for rider Forest Boyce, who won her first career race as a jockey aboard Colony Club on June 30, 2009.

 

“She’s a very nice filly,” Boyce said.  “You can put her wherever.  She can race on the lead or from behind.  She’s a tough little filly and everything worked out well today.”

 

A 5-year-old mare by Lion Hearted from the Wild Again mare Wild Shine, Colony Club sports a record of 5-4-0 from 13 lifetime starts.  She has banked $140,714 for her connections.
