The perfect run for Woodford Racing LLC’s Timeline continued at Monmouth Park on Sunday afternoon, as the colt made it four-for-four in taking the $100,000 betfair.com Pegasus Stakes by an impressive 3 ½ lengths before a Father’s Day crowd of 18,527.

“He was brilliant again,” said winning trainer Chad Brown.  “There was a chance he would wind up on the lead.  Ultimately, I just left it up to Javier (jockey Castellano).  He rode a terrific race, as always.”

Timeline was hustled to the front early before opening a clear lead up the backstretch.  Turning for home, runner-up Talk Logistics got within a length of the leader before being repelled.  The winner stopped the timer in 1:41.32, just one second off the track record of 1:41.20 set by Formal Gold in 1997.  Dispatched the 1-10 choice in the field of five 3-year-old colts and geldings, Timeline paid $2.20, $2.10 and $2.10.  Talk Logistics completed the $5 exacta and paid $2.60 and $2.10.  It was another 13 ¼ lengths back to Honor the Fleet, who paid $2.10 to show.

“I used him a little out of the gate to just get him going,” Castellano said.  “I loved the way he did it today because when I asked him early, he didn’t rush.  He just galloped along on the lead.  He handled the track so well.  He’s a very nice horse.”

A colt by Hard Spun from the Empire Maker mare Azorina, Timeline broke his maiden at seven furlongs at Gulfstream on March 4 before taking an entry level allowance at Aqueduct on April 6 at a mile.  Last out, he captured the Grade 3 Peter Pan at Belmont going a mile and an eighth.

Sunday’s Grade 3 score moves Timeline’s lifetime earnings to $243,000.
