Joffe’s Run a Standout in Regal Gal Overnight
Andrew Rosen’s 3-year-old filly Joffe’s Run romped home an 11-length winner of the Sweettrickydancer overnight stakes going a mile on the main track on July 5 in her last start after that race was forced off turf, and comes back over the same track and distance as a likely odds-on choice in Saturday’s $55,000 Regal Gal overnight stakes.
Jockey Jermaine Bridgmohan gets a return call on Joffe’s Run for trainer Marty Wolfson as she faces five rivals her own age. A chestnut daughter of Giant’s Causeway, Joffe’s Run raced in England last year with trainer Brian Meehan before coming to the U.S. to finish 10th over a ‘yielding’ course in the Epitome Breeders’ Cup at Monmouth Park in late October.
Completing the field for the Regal Gal are Marilyn Seltzer’s Amazing, Ariel Smith; A and P Maestre’s Stephaningrid, Manuel Aguilar; Sidney Sacks’ Tidal Dance, Carlos Olivero; and Shirley Duco’s uncoupled entry of Glotona and Exclusive Woman with Pedro Monterrey, Jr. and Eduardo Nunez to ride, respectively.
