That replay really tells the story. If you look at the rest of the turf routes run at Monmouth yesterday they were all won by front runners in extraordinarily fast times. The turf claiming race run right after the United Nations was run in 1:34 and change. That's Autobon speed!
Crazy race. The course was rated "Firm as cement" I would assume.
If you haven't seen it... you have to watch this replay! Presious Passion rockets to the lead and jumps in front by 20! Announcer Larry Collmus can hardly believe it... this is a 1 3/8 mile turf race and he holds on with ease... It was a ballsy ride by Elvis Trujillo, to say the least... but this guy is a real runner and has been trained very well by Mary Hartmann, who hasn't gotten enough credit. Back to back wins in the United Nations at Monmouth, very impressive!
