PARADISE TONIGHT CAPTURES FEATURE AT MONMOUTH
OCEANPORT, N.J. * Paradise Tonight stalked the pace until midstretch, and then turned on the speed to win Wednesday’s $41,000 allowance feature for fillies and mares by four lengths at Monmouth Park.
The winner, trained by Joe Pierce Jr. and ridden by Eddie Castro, stepped the one mile and 70 yards in 1:42 4/5 over the fast main track and paid $6, $2.80 and $2.20 across the board as second choice in the field of six.
