Gypsy Robin, Hasay Win Monmouth Stakes

Ward, Bell and Welker’s Gypsy Robin held off Say a Novena to capture the $100,000 Sorority Stakes by a length as Team Valor International’s Hasay powered past pacesetter In the Rough to capture the $75,000 Omnibus Stakes at Monmouth Park on Monday.

 

Gypsy Robin, conditioned by co-owner Wesley Ward, covered the six furlongs over the fast main track in 1:10 4/5 and returned $7.60, $4 and $2.60.  Say a Novena completed the $30.40 exacta and paid $3.20 and $2.10.  It was 5 ½ lengths back the 2-1 favorite in the field of 2-year-old fillies, Select Cat, who paid $2.40 to show.

 

“I tried to take her back a little bit, but she has so much speed,” said winning jockey Jeffrey Sanchez.  “In the stretch, I wasn’t worried.  She had so much left and held everyone off no problem.”

 

Gypsy Robin broke her maiden first out at Keeneland in April.  She was then sent to the Group 2 Queen Mary Stakes at Royal Ascot in England, before returning to the States and finishing fourth in the Grade 3 Schuylerville at Saratoga last out.  From her two victories, the daughter of Daaher from the Indian Charlie mare Feisty Princess has won $95,000 for her connections.

 

In the Omnibus, Hasay sat just off the lead before collaring pacesetter In the Rough and holding all rivals safe at bay, stepping the mile and three-eighths over firm turf in 2:13 4/5.

 

Trained by H. Graham Motion, Hasay returned $12.80, $5.60 and $4.20 and topped the $45.60 exacta.  It was a length back to Dyna Waltz, who paid $4 to place and $3.40 to show.  Tarrip was another nose back in third, good for a $4.40 to show.

 

“My horse broke really good,” said winning jockey Pablo Morales.  “Even though she was a little rank early, I think I was able to get her to relax a little.  I tried to keep her covered up in behind the one (In the Rough) and when I heard somebody coming I got her into a clear path.”

 

The Omnibus Stakes score was the first this year and third lifetime for Hasay, a 4-year-old filly by Lomitas from the Sillery mare Saralea.  She has now earned $77,110.

 

Live racing continues at Monmouth Park on Saturday, Sept. 10 – gates open at 11:30 a.m. with first post set for 12:50 p.m.  As always, the racetrack is open seven days a week for simulcasting from across the country and around the globe.
