JENNY BEAN GIRL UPSETS FEATURE AT MONMOUTH
OCEANPORT, N.J. * Ocean View Stables’ Jenny Bean Girl, longest shot in the field at 6-1, gained command in midstretch and held off favored Lucky Revival late to win Friday’s $45,000 allowance/optional claiming feature at Monmouth Park.
Jenny Bean Girl, trained by J. Willard Thompson and ridden by Daniel Centeno, scored by half a length over Lucky Revival, stopping the timer in 1:43 flat for the one mile and 70 yards over a track labeled “good.”
This was the first victory of the year in five starts for Jenny Bean Girl, a 6-year-old New Jersey-bred mare by Sefapiano * That’s a Plenty, by Dixieland Band. Last year, she won three of nine starts, including Monmouth’s Spruce Fir and Jersey Girl Handicaps for state-breds. Today’s win gave her a lifetime mark of 6-8-4 in 26 starts at Monmouth.
