Grand Jete Wins Eatontown Stakes at Monmouth Park
Monmouth Park in Oceanport, New Jersey was the scene of the $100,000 G3 Eatontown Stakes on Saturday, June 3 - a 1 1/16 miles turf race for fillies and mares three years old and upward. Juddmonte Farms' homebred, co-6-1 second betting choice Grand Jete served notice that she may be a force to be reckoned with her first North American graded stakes score. Light in Paris, who was also sent off at 6-1 odds finished a good second, 1 1/4 lengths back in the field of 11 while tepid 5-1 favorite Zipessa held for third three-quarters of a length back. Tricky Escape was fourth while Bishop's Pond, Hip Hop N Jazz, Tin Type Gal, Call Thirty Seven, All in Fun, Quiet Kitten, and Shaan completed the order of finish. Kyllachy Queen, Time and Motion, Money'soncharlotte, and Pleasant Mine were scratched.
