Howe Great Scores in Jersey Derby

Team Valor International’s Howe Great came with a wide run in the stretch before kicking clear to a length and a quarter win in the $60,000 Jersey Derby at Monmouth Park on Saturday.
 
Trained by H. Graham Motion, Howe Great covered the mile and a sixteenth over firm turf in 1:42.67 and paid $2.60, $2.40 and $2.10 as the odds-on choice in America’s oldest Derby, first contested in 1864.  Fire Alarm rallied to complete the $14 exacta and paid $7 to place and $3.40 to show.  It was another two lengths back to Crafty Unicorn, who paid $3.40 to show.
 
“This is a pretty forwardly-placed horse,” said winning jockey Joe Bravo.  “He loves the game.  He wasn’t under much pressure the whole time, he was nice and relaxed.  I was just out there to hold on.”
 
A 3-year-old colt by Hat Trick from the Western Winter mare Ginger Sea, Howe Great now sports a record of 5-2-1 from nine starts.  He has earned $322,153 for his connections.
