CLASSIFY TAKES SUNDAY’S INCREDIBLE REVENGE STAKES
OCEANPORT, N.J. * Winchell Thoroughbreds’ Classify gained the lead in the shadow of the wire before posting a neck victory in the $60,000 Incredible Revenge Stakes at Monmouth Park on Sunday.
Trained by Steve Asmussen, Classify covered the 5 ½ furlongs over a fast main track in 1:03 3/5 and returned $7.60 and $3.60. Beau Dare, the 3-2 favorite, set the early fractions but had to settle for second paying $2.80 to place and completing a $22.60 exacta. It was 8 ¾ lengths back to Pure Disco who finished third. Jazzy was last in the field of fillies and mares that scratched down to four runners after being transferred from the turf to the main track.
Sunday’s win marked the seventh in 16 starts for Classify, a daughter of Unbridled’s Song from the Olympio mare Classic Olympio. She has now earned $205,250 for her connections.
Live racing resumes at Monmouth Park on Wednesday, August 20 * first post 12:50 p.m. As always, the racetrack is open seven days a week for simulcast racing from across the country and around the globe.
