Monmouth Park Barn Notes - June 14

New Monmouth Park logo
Trainer Eddie Plesa Jr. will send Sailinginforthewin into Saturday’s $60,000 Crank It Up Stakes, her first race since breaking her maiden last out on May 18. Sailinginforthewin went gate to wire in a maiden special weight event on Monmouth’s main track that day and will go 5 ½ furlongs in her first try over the turf Saturday.

“I thought this was a good opportunity to try to get her some black-type,” said Plesa. “I know she’s quick. It doesn’t matter if it comes off, she can run turf or dirt. The only question will be how many are in there and how much speed will be to her inside.”

A 3-year-old filly by Mizzen Mast, Sailinginforthewin has already earned $32,400 in three starts for owner Live Oak Plantation.  

Elvis Trujillo, who leads all jockeys in the standings thus far, will get the call aboard Sailinginforthewin in the Crank It Up, which is scheduled as the 10th race on an 11 race card Saturday.




While in the gate for the 8th race on May 25, Vizir, a 3-year-old gelding by Empire Maker reared in the gate unseating jockey Chris DeCarlo. DeCarlo hasn’t missed any time since the accident, but was recently diagnosed with tenosynovitis in his left foot, an inflammation around the tendon. He will miss this weekend of racing, but he hopes to be back this Tuesday.

“I hurt my foot in the process and was told to take this weekend off,” said DeCarlo. “Basically it’s a better safe than sorry type thing.”

DeCarlo has won 5 of 44 mounts this meet, good for earnings of $140,480 and a tie for eighth place in the standings.




A popular destination for many fathers, Monmouth Park will be buzzing on Sunday for Father’s Day. To show their appreciation for everything that dads do, all gentlemen will receive free grandstand or clubhouse admission at the track Sunday.

Aside from all-day live racing, patrons will be able to take dad to a Father’s Day brunch in the Turf Club, visit the MLB Strike Zone, and enter in Monmouth’s Father’s Day Sports Ticket Giveaway. Over 30 pairs of tickets will be given away for teams such as the Jets, Mets, Yankees, Phillies, Devils, and many more. Family Fun Day will also be in full swing on Sunday with pony rides, face painting, and a bounce house for the kids, while Tim McLoone and The Shirleys perform “On the Green.” 

Gates open at 11:30 a.m. on Father’s Day, and the first race is set for 12:50 p.m.
