Patsy Boyne Makes Debut at Meadowlands

New Monmouth Park logo
A quick glance at Friday’s 2nd race at the Meadowlands shows 2-year-old fillies running a mile on turf.  A deeper look shows an absolute standout in the pedigree department belonging to Patsy Boyne, an Irish-bred filly who makes her career debut for the $28,000 purse.

As if it weren’t enough that Patsy Boyne is by Galileo, winner of the English and Irish Derbies and one of the world’s leading sires, her mother is Kasora (Ire), who produced two-time Eclipse Award winner High Chaparral, winner of 10 of 13 starts, including back-to-back Breeders’ Cup Turf Classics and earner of more than $5 million.

Now add in the trainer, H. Graham Motion, who earlier this year sent Animal Kingdom out for a dominating score in the world’s richest race, the $10 million Dubai World Cup.

Patsy Boyne will head to the post in the colors of Merriebelle Stable with jockey Matthew Rispoli in the irons.  The duo will break from post two in a field that has drawn 13 entrants.

Her main competition appears to be from Gem City Gal, who will be making her fifth career start for trainer Jason Servis, and Charlie Renee, who ran third in her turf debut last out at Delaware.

The Meadowlands card gets underway at 2:15 p.m., with gates opening at 11:30 a.m.


With a string of high-priced runners on last Monday’s card at the Meadowlands, there will be a pair of carryovers awaiting race fans for this Friday’s action.

The Pick 5, which starts in the second race will have a carryover of $8,289.96, while the Jersey Six, which runs the entire six-race program, sports a carryover of $1,822.25.


Monmouth Park will host a Breeders’ Cup Party on Saturday, Nov. 2 coinciding with Day 2 of the 30th Breeders’ Cup World Championships at Santa Anita.

The event will take place in Monmouth Park’s luxurious Turf Club and for $40 will include valet parking, Breeders’ Cup program, lunch buffet, and an exclusive Breeders’ Cup tip sheet from Monmouth Park’s own Brad Thomas.

Nine Breeders’ Cup races are scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 2 capped by the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic.  All championship races – along with all undercard races plus a variety of simulcast signals – will be shown in the Turf Club from 12pm to 9pm.  The event will house large-screen TVs in addition to the room’s numerous flat screens, private betting windows and a cash bar.

Beginning at 6 p.m., and courtesy of the Breeders’ Cup, the entire racetrack will celebrate “Happy Hour” with drink specials running right up to the Classic.
