Rush Now Rolls in Spend a Buck

Rush Now took control out of the gate and never looked back, taking the $75,000 Spend a Buck Stakes at Monmouth Park on Sunday by 4 ¼ lengths.           


Trained by Anthony Dutrow, Rush Now stepped the mile and 70 yards over a fast main track in 1:40 3/5 and returned $4, $3 and $2.20 as the odds-on favorite in the field of six 3-year-old colts and geldings.  Longshot Uncle Otto completed the $60 exacta and paid $11.80 and $3.80.  It was another 3 ¼ lengths back to Malibu Glow, who paid $2.20 to show.


“He’s a nice 3-year-old,” said winning jockey Joe Bravo.  “We were really helped out today by the lack of speed in the race.  He just galloped around there.  The hardest part of the race was pulling him up.”


A colt by Tiznow from the Wild Rush mare Dirty Rush, Rush Now sports a record of 4-1-1 from nine starts.  He has earned $158,765 for owners David Cottle and Smart Angle LLP.


Live racing continues at Monmouth Park on Saturday, May 28 – gates open at 11:30 a.m. with first post set for 12:50 p.m.  The racetrack will host live cards on Saturday, Sunday and Monday next weekend.  After that, the regular schedule of Friday through Sunday racing will commence.
