TOWNSHIP CAT WINS SPRINT FEATURE AT MONMOUTH
OCEANPORT, N.J. * New Farm’s Township Cat turned on the speed in midstretch and scored a one-length victory in the $41,000 allowance feature at Monmouth Park on Wednesday.
The winner, trained by Ben Perkins Jr. and ridden by Eddie Castro, stopped the timer in 1:10 3/5 for six furlongs over the fast main track.
This was the second straight win for Township Cat, a 3-year-old son of Delaware Township who was one of two New Jersey-breds in the field of eight. The colt stayed in the mix through the first half-mile, and then asserted himself in the stretch, holding off First Degree with ease.
