Pleasant Prince Wins Monmouth Feature

Pleasant Prince before the Blue Grass

Ken and Sarah Ramsey’s Pleasant Prince sat behind the early leaders before angling out in the lane and getting up in the shadow of the wire to win the $54,000 allowance/optional claiming feature at Monmouth Park on Friday.

 

Trained by Wesley Ward, Pleasant Prince covered the mile and 70 yards over a fast main track in 1:41 and paid $8.60, $4.80 and $3.80.  It was a head back to pacesetter Hermosillo, who returned $11.60 and $4 and completed the $80.80 exacta.  Thomas Got Even was another neck back in third, good for a $4.60 show price.

 

A 4-year-old colt by Indy King from the Pleasant Tap mare Archduchess, Pleasant Prince was making just his second start since finishing ninth in last year’s $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic.

 

Pleasant Prince’s victory was the fourth on the card for Elvis Trujillo, the meet’s leading jockey.  Trujillo won the second race atop Tiger’s Charm ($6.40), the fifth with Fire King ($3.40) and the seventh aboard Crafty Concorde ($10.60).
