THUNDERS DOVE TAKES THURSDAY FEATURE AT MONMOUTH
OCEANPORT, N.J. * Windmill Manor Farm’s Thunders Dove romped home a 5 ¼ length winner in the $47,000 allowance/optional claiming event at Monmouth Park on Thursday, stepping the six furlongs in 1:09 flat.
Trained by Nick Zito and ridden by Elvis Trujillo, Thunders Dove returned $4, $2.40 and $2.10 as the odds-on favorite in the field of five fillies and mares. Dicey Girl rallied to complete the $7.40 exacta and paid $2.60 and $2.10. It was another three-quarters of a length back to Sheets, who returned $2.40 to show.
Thursday’s win was the second in five starts this year for the 4-year-old by Thunderello from the Pulpit mare Preachtothechoir.
