Big day for DiDomenico in Gaitway qualifiers

Manalapan, NJ — The last time trainer Scott DiDomenico qualified 2-year-olds at Gaitway Farm, it seemed dark clouds followed him at every turn. Of the eight horses he sent into action that morning last June, one posted a win and only one other finished better than fifth.

“It was kind of a beatdown day,” DiDomeninco said.

On Monday, there were dark clouds — literally, this time — all around but DiDomenico had a sunny disposition after watching three of his seven 2-year-olds post victories and another finish second.

“It was a good day at the office,” DiDomenico said. “It’s been a little lean the last couple years qualifying here. To see these horses come through and go good is very fulfilling. It certainly wasn’t a Black Monday today; it was a good Monday.”

A misty rain fell throughout the morning, with the temperature at 65 degrees to start the card. The track was rated “good.”
