OCEANPORT, N.J. * J and J Stables’ Greystone Warrior jumped to the lead from the gate and never looked back as he scored a two and a half-length victory in the $40,000 allowance feature at Monmouth Park on Wednesday.
The winner, trained by Jason Servis and ridden by David Cohen, zipped the six furlongs in 1:10 flat over the fast main track and paid $8, $3.60 and $2.40 across the board as third choice in the field of six.
Truthbetold, who chased the winner all the way, held second by a length over Libertarian. Far East Gold, the 3-2 favorite, finished fourth. Truthbetold completed the $32.40 exacta and paid $4.40 to place and $3.20 to show. Libertarian returned $3.20 to show.
This was the second straight victory for Greystone Warrior, a roan son of Monarchos who has now been first or second in all five starts for J and J Stables. The Kentucky-bred had run second three straight times before breaking his maiden last out on Aug. 6.
