Servis Excited About Christiesborntorun

Brian Drazin’s Christiesborntorun has faced some salty foes in his three lifetime starts on the main track. 

 

In career start number one, the 3-year-old colt by Grand Slam finished behind future stakes winner Vengeful Wildcat.  In start number two, he was third behind Zero Rate Policy, who has already won two races this summer at Monmouth Park including the Rumson Stakes.

 

But following his maiden-breaking score last out in career start number three, Christiesborntorun will try the turf in his first start against winners in Sunday’s $65,000 Anderson Fowler Stakes, run at 5 ½ furlongs.

 

“He worked a couple times on the turf this winter at Palm Meadows,” said trainer Jason Servis.  “He went five furlongs down there in 1:01.  That’s really moving.”

 

Servis says he’s looked forward to running Christiesborntorun on the turf for a while now and believes turf sprinting might be his game.

 

“He’s kind of a blocky horse, so I think he’ll be best sprinting,” the conditioner said.  “I trained the mare (Chocolate Brown) as well, and she was a total rocket ship.  I remember we couldn’t find a two-year-old fillies race for her so we ran her against the boys first time out and she won by eight lengths.”


  Christiesborntorun will enter the Anderson Fowler off just two weeks rest, but that doesn’t concern her trainer.

 

“It’s wheeling back a little quick, but I think he’ll be fine,” Servis said.  “I’m excited to see how he does on the turf.”

 

 

AT THE DISCO READY TO ROCK ‘N ROLL IN SUNDAY’S BERNIE DOWD

 

 

Patricia Generazio’s At the Disco has six Monmouth Park wins in his career including the 2009 edition of the Bernie Dowd. 

 

On Sunday, the 7-year-old Disco Rico colt will compete in the $65,000 state-bred stakes race for the third year in a row.

 

Trained by Mary Hartmann, At the Disco hasn’t run since finishing eighth in the Frisk Me Now Stakes against open company last November at Monmouth Park.

 

“The layoff is not a concern,” Hartmann said.  “He usually runs well off the bench.  He’s been training well and everything is a go for Sunday.”

 

At the Disco shows five works for his return to the races, capped by a pair of stamina-building, one-mile drills in recent weeks. 

 

The gray/roan horse will break from post nine with jockey Elvis Trujillo aboard.  They will face a field of eight New Jersey-bred rivals including Garden State fixtures Evenings End, Hermosillo, and Hop Skip and Away.

 

FATHER’S DAY FESTIVITIES AT MONMOUTH ON SUNDAY

 

 

Monmouth Park will celebrate Father’s Day on Sunday in traditional fashion, with free Grandstand admission for Dads and Moms accompanied by a child, and drawings for tickets to sporting events.

 

Drawings will be held throughout the afternoon for tickets to many local sports teams, including the New York Mets, New York Yankees, Philadelphia Phillies and Lakewood BlueClaws.

 

Father’s Day is always one of the biggest days of the year at Monmouth, and the afternoon will feature Family Fun Day activities and live music with Tim McLoone & The Shirleys.
