Cheyenne Stables LLC’s Stormy Regatta stormed home down the middle of the stretch to take the first division of Sunday’s $60,000 Little Silver Stakes as Isabella Sings took her rivals wire-to-wire in the second division on Sunday at Monmouth Park.

Stormy Regatta had to track down a game Rachel Wall, who was trying to take the field wire-to-wire after a moderate pace of :24 1/5 for the quarter mile and :48 1/5 for the half, to score the victory by a nose.  Trained by Christophe Clement, Stormy Regatta covered the mile and a sixteenth over the “firm” turf course in 1:41 3/5 and paid $4, $3 and $2.40. Rachel Wall completed the $59.60 exacta and paid $14, $7.20. It was another length and a half back to Kawfee Fa Marfa, who paid $3.60 to show.

“She is just a classy filly,” said winner jockey Joe Bravo. “We were sitting comfortable down the backside, but they were going so easy on the front end. We had to move a little sooner than I would like, but I knew she had a lot left coming down the stretch.”

The 3-year-old filly by Midshipman out of the A.P. Indy mare Storm Front now boasts a 3-0-1 record in her five career starts.

Two races later it was Isabella Sings’ turn in the Little Silver.  Trained by Todd Pletcher, Isabella Sings went the same distance in 1:40 3/5 and paid $21.40, $7.80, $2.80.  It was nearly a length back to Jaded Glory, who completed the $51.20 exacta and paid $3.20 and $2.10.  It was nearly another length back to Kitten’s Roar, who paid $2.10 to show.

“The plan was to get her to relax early in the race,” said winning jockey Abel Castellano Jr.  “She broke well and was very comfortable going down the backstretch.  Turning for home, we were still in a great spot and I didn’t have to ask her much to get going.”

A 3-year-old daughter of Eskendereya from the Lomitas mare Isobel Bailie, Isabella Sings now sports a record of 3-2-0 from eight starts.
