OCEANPORT, N.J. * Oh Deanne O set most of the pace and stayed strong through the stretch as she scored a half-length victory in the $45,000 allowance feature on the Monmouth turf course Friday afternoon.
The winner, trained by Cam Gambolati and ridden by Elvis Trujillo, raced the one mile over a firm grass course in 1:34 2/5 and paid $8, $4.40 and $3.60 across the board as the second choice in the field of seven fillies and mares.
Datttsourgirl made a run at the leader in the stretch, but had to settle for second and paid $5.40 to place and $2.80 to show while completing the $44.60 exacta. Czarina’s Girl rallied late to get third, returning $4.40 to show. Survived, the 9-5 favorite, stumbled leaving the gate and finished fourth.
This was the second victory of the year for Oh Deanne O, a 4-year-old filly by Dynaformer who races in the colors of Richland Hills, Inc. She won a race at Gulfstream earlier this season.
