Super Robusto Lands Monmouth Feature

Talons Racing’s Super Robusto held off the oncoming Todd Got Even to capture the $54,000 allowance/optional claiming by a nose at Monmouth Park on Friday afternoon.


Trained by Edward J. Colletti Sr. and ridden by Angel Serpa, Super Robusto went the six furlongs over a fast main track in 1:09 and paid $18.40, $7 and $4.60.  Todd Got Even completed the $153.40 exacta and returned $9 to place and $4.40 to show.  It was another 5 ¼ lengths back to Mannington, who paid $3 to show.


Friday’s victory marked the first win in three starts this year for Super Robusto, a 5-year-old gelding by Smoke Glacken from the Touch Gold mare Stylish Manner.


One race earlier on the card, Delores Wagner’s Caffe D’Oro broke on top and never looked back, covering five furlongs over firm turf in :54.57, a new course record.  A 5-year-old gelding by Medaglia d’Oro, Caffe D’Oro returned $7.40 to win in the $50,000 allowance contest.


Trained by Juan Serey and ridden by Navin Mangalee, Caffe D’Oro bested the record of Perfect Officer, who as a 3-year-old stepped the five furlongs, with the portable rail out 36 feet, in :54.77 on July 17, 2009.
