My Sunshine Gal, Team Six Top MTH Stakes

Monmouth will offer two stakes on Sunday’s 12-race card, with the $70,000 Desert Vixen for 3-year-old fillies going as the 10th race, and the $70,000 Tyro for 2-year-olds set as the fifth event.

 

My Sunshine Gal, owned by The Parting Glass Stable, tops the field of nine for the Desert Vixen at a mile and a sixteenth on the turf. The West Acre filly made her Monmouth debut in the Grade 3 Boiling Springs Stakes here on June 25 and rallied in the stretch to get second in her first graded stakes try.

 

Derek Ryan trains My Sunshine Gal, who starts from Post 4 with Joe Bravo aboard for the first time. Ryan will also send out Liam Benson’s Glore Racer, who won a claiming race on the Monmouth turf last out.

 

The five and a half-furlong Tyro, a prep for the $150,000 Sapling Stakes (G3) on Sept. 3, drew a field of seven, topped by Joseph Strazzanti’s Team Six.

 

The colt, a son of 2004 Haskell Invitational winner Lion Heart, has raced just twice, and turned in two powerful efforts.


He broke his maiden here at first asking for trainer Mark Shuman, scoring by five lengths on June 18, and then ran a sharp race to finish second in the Grade 2 Futurity Stakes at Belmont on July 3. Angel Serpa, who was aboard in his maiden win, gets the call again Sunday.
