Miss Valentine Draws Off in Serena's Song

Waterville Lake Stable’s Miss Valentine gained command after turning for home and drew off to a three-length score in the $75,000 Serena’s Song Stakes at Monmouth Park on Saturday.

 

Trained by Christophe Clement, Miss Valentine sat mid-pack early before making her move nearing the far turn.  She overpowered pacesetter Coco Ecolo just before the eighth-pole and finished up strong to pay $6.40, $2.60 and $2.60 as the favorite in the field of seven 3-year-old fillies.  Withgreatpleasure rallied to complete the $32 exacta and paid $4.20 and $2.80.  It was another length and a quarter back to Coco Ecolo, who returned $2.40 to show.

 

“I have to give all the credit to Christophe Clement,” said winning jockey Joe Bravo.  “He did a great job with this filly.  He told me just to get her to relax early since she was stretching out to two turns for the first time in a while.  There was a good honest pace, but this is a stakes race.  Everyone is here to win.”

 

The Serena’s Song was the third win in seven starts for Miss Valentine, a daughter of Afleet Alex from the Gilded Time mare Miss Yiayia.  She has now banked $154,800 for her connections.
