Eye Of Taurus Scores in Revidere

Harvey A. Clarke’s Eye of Taurus sat off pacesetter Giant Mover, before collaring that foe inside the eighth pole and drawing off to a length win in the $75,000 Revidere Stakes at Monmouth Park on Saturday.


Trained by Kiaran McLaughlin, Eye of Taurus stepped the mile and a sixteenth over firm turf in 1:40.23 and returned $6.80, $3.40 and $3 as the second choice in the field of eight fillies and mares. Giant Mover completed the $25.80 exacta and paid $4.20 to place and $3.60 to show. It was another 7 ¾ lengths back to Talkin About Love, who rallied to pay $10 to show. Unbridled Essence, the 9-5 favorite, checked in fifth.


“We just sat off the early pace and she relaxed,” said winning jockey Eddie Castro. “Nearing the final turn I started to ask her and she really kicked in. She showed a good turn of foot and ran a great race.”


A 4-year-old filly by Aldebaran from the Silver Hawk mare Ocean Shore, Eye of Taurus recorded her fifth win in 18 starts by taking the Revidere. She has now earned $249,630 for her connections.
