SAN PABLO RUNS AWAY WITH ISELIN STAKES
Oceanport, N.J. – Burning Sands Stable LLC’s San Pablo powered past Small Town Talk and Toby’s Corner in mid-stretch before drawing off to a 3 ½ length victory in the Grade 3 $150,000 Philip H. Iselin Stakes at Monmouth Park on Saturday before a crowd of 11,958.
Trained by Todd Pletcher, San Pablo sat off the pace early before coming under a ride around the far turn and reeling in his foes near the 1/8th pole. San Pablo covered the mile and an eighth over a fast main track in 1:49.59 and paid $3.80, $2.40 and $2.10 as the favorite in the field of six colts and geldings. Toby’s Corner completed the $8.60 exacta and paid $2.80 and $2.40. It was another head back to pacesetter Small Town Talk, who returned $3.60 to show.
