OCEANPORT, N.J. * Lee Lewis’s Sway charged into command on the stretch turn and then held off a late surge by Zulmin to win Wednesday’s $41,000 allowance feature on the Monmouth Park turf course.
Sway, sent off the 11-10 favorite in the field of six fillies and mares, stepped the mile and a sixteenth over firm turf in 1:42 flat under Eddie Castro and paid $4.20, $2.60 and $2.20 across the board.
Zulmin settled for the place, a length and a half behind the winner, and paid $4.20 to place and $3 to show and completed the $18.20 exacta. Stella Nova was third, two lengths farther back, and paid $3 to show.
Mark Hennig trains Sway, a 4-year-old filly by Swain who won her third race in six starts this season. She was second in her previous try on the Monmouth turf in June.
