Cool Bullet Wins Rumson Stakes

Cool Bullet lived up to his odds-on billing in the $100,000 Rumson Stakes on Sunday at Monmouth Park, taking the event by two lengths.


Trained by Steve Margolis, Cool Bullet stepped the six furlongs over a fast main track in 1:11 2/5 and paid $3.60, $2.20 and $2.10. Nathan’s H Q, who battled with Kens Cape early, held the place, completing the $8 exacta and paying $3.20 and $2.80. It was another two lengths back to My Man Marty, who rallied to pay $4.40 to show.


“I just let him bounce away from the gate,” said winning jockey Garrett Gomez. “No one really wanted to go, but I didn’t want to take too strong of a hold of him. The other horse (Kens Cape) finally went up and challenged so I was able to slide in and track in third. When it was time to go, he went on with it very well.”


After stalking the pacesetters, Cool Bullet powered past his rivals just outside the 1/16th pole before drawing off to victory. A 3-year-old gelding by Preakness winner Red Bullet from the Saint Ballado mare Lizzy Cool, Cool Bullet boosted his lifetime record to 4-2-0 from nine starts. He has earned $170,894 for owners Winmore LLC and Robert and Lawana Low.
