MY ADONIS VICTORIOUS IN LONG BRANCH STAKES
Oceanport, N.J. – My Adonis moved to the lead along the backstretch, drew off in the stretch and then held off a hard-charging Macho Macho to capture the $100,000 Long Branch Stakes by a half length as Royal Currier scored by the identical margin in the $75,000 Mr. Prospector Stakes on Sunday at Monmouth Park.
Owned by George and Lori Hall, My Adonis covered the mile and a sixteenth over a fast main track in 1:44.98 and paid $5.40, $2.80 and $2.40. Macho Macho rallied to complete the $13.60 exacta and paid $2.60 and $2.40. It was another 10 ¾ of a length back to Window Boy, who paid 2.80 to show.
