Stakes Winner POOL WINNER Places in $300,000 Turf Monster-G3
Coming off a stakes win in his first attend, POOL WINNER put in a strong effort to place in the five-furlong, $300,000 Turf Monster S.-G3 at Parx Racing, beaten only 1 1/2 lengths. A winner of his last five starts, including four this year, the 4-year-old son of BROKEN VOW was bumped soon after the break but recovered to stalk the pace between horses down the backstretch. He kept the pressure on the frontrunner around the turn, went six wide at the top of the stretch and continued to run on strongly to the wire. In his last start, the 53rd and newest Graded stakes horse for his sire won the 5 1/2-furlong My Frenchman S. on the turf at Monmouth Park in 1:01 3/5, just a second off the course record. Lifetime record: 16-6-6-1, $276,040. O/B-Colts Neck Stables LLC. T-Alan Goldberg.
