Out of Respect Likely for Jersey Shore

Monmouth will offer six stakes on the holiday weekend, July 2-5, and one that is expected to provide a lot of fireworks on the Fourth of July is the $200,000 Jersey Shore Stakes (G3) for 3-year-olds at six furlongs.


The sprint always draws some really fast horses, and the list of past winners includes 1997 sprint champion Smoke Glacken, and Idiot Proof, who set the track record of 1:07.47 in winning the race in 2007.


This year’s 19th running of the Jersey Shore is likely to attract another fast crowd that includes Cool Bullet, who won the Rumson Stakes as his prep, and Partyallnightlong, who has already won twice at the meet.


Trainer Scott Volk is looking forward to running Dennis Narlinger’s Out of Respect in the stakes, especially after the gelding’s most recent showing.


Out of Respect, by Read the Footnotes, used his considerable speed to outrun a solid allowance group here on June 13, stopping the timer in 1:10 flat. It was his first race after a three-month layoff.


“He ran a huge race after a huge layoff,” Volk said of the colt’s last start. “But the way he was training, I expected him to win, and he did. And he won easily.


“Now he’s got to step up a little in the Jersey Shore,” the trainer said.


Out of Respect, a New York-bred, has run five times in his career, with three wins and two seconds, all at six furlongs.
