Pomeroys Pistol, Zero Rate Policy Score

Hardacre Farm LLC’s Pomeroys Pistol sat off the early speed before reeling in pacesetters Maple Forest and Honey Chile to capture the $75,000 Just Smashing Stakes as Zero Rate Policy dominated his five rivals in the $75,000 Rumson Stakes at Monmouth Park on Saturday.

 

Ridden by Chris DeCarlo, Pomeroy’s Pistol covered the six furlongs over a fast main track in 1:09 flat and paid $5.80, $3.20 and $2.20 in the field of five 3-year-old fillies.  Maple Forest finished 4 ½ lengths behind the winner and paid $3.20 and $2.20.  The exacta returned $20.80.  It was another 4 ½ lengths back to Honey Chile, the post-time favorite, who paid $2.10 to show.

 

“There were some nice horses in there,” said winning trainer Amy Tarrant, who also owns Hardacre Farm.  “I’m always happy when she shows what she’s got.  I did expect this today.  She’s a stone-cold sprinter.  Chris (jockey DeCarlo) did a great job riding her and when it was time to go she did what she needed to do.”

 

Earlier this year, Pomeroys Pistol captured the Grade 2 Forward Gal at Gulfstream Park.  She now sports a lifetime record of 3-1-2 from eight starts and earnings of $260,178.

 

Owned by Klaravich Stables and W. H. Lawrence, Zero Rate Policy covered the six furlongs over a fast main track in a snappy 1:08 4/5 and returned $3.80, $2.60 and $2.20 as the odds-on choice in the Rumson.  It was nearly five lengths back to Razmataz, who completed the $8.20 exacta and paid $3 and $2.60.  Brother in Arms was another neck back in third, good for a $4.20 show mutuel.

 

“He’s something special,” said winning rider Carlos H. Marquez Jr.  “He’s push button.  I just let him roll out of the gate and when it’s time to go, he does the rest.  He’s really fast and continues to mature with each race.”

 

Zero Rate Policy, trained by Terri Pompay, sports a record of 3-1-0 from four starts.  The 3-year-old gelding by Trippi from the Unbridled’s Song mare Untitled Song has now earned $124,184.
