Las Vegas, NV - The Grade 3 Jersey Shores Stakes comes our way from Monmouth Park this Saturday, July 14th. Three year olds will dash six furlongs on Monmouth's main dirt track in
search of their share of the $100,000 purse.
The Jersey Shore Stakes has attracted a competitive field of six for race 10 on Monmouth
Park's Saturday schedule. Post time is 5:17 PM. Here is a look at the six combatants and the
recent results that brought them to this six furlong Grade 3 race.
Isn't He Clever - started his 2012 campaign with a decent fourth in the Grade 2
Robert B. Lewis Stakes and then went on to win the Borderland Derby. In March Isn't He Clever
continued to look fine with a second in the Grade 3 Sunland Derby but he struggled in his last
two races - an eighth place finish in the Grade 1 Arkansas Derby was followed by a seventh last
time out in the Grade 2 Woody Stephens Stakes. This is a tough horse to figure out but being
the lone stakes winner in the field he has to be considered the favorite.
Cape Cod Canal - has just two career starts with a win last time out by 8 ½ lengths
in a Maiden Special Weight race at here on June 23rd to follow a second place finish in a similar
race here on June 2nd.
Wildcat Creek - is coming off an Allowance score here on June 24th to follow up a
second and a third place finish in the last couple of months in similar races. The will be Wildcat
Creek's second graded stakes try - the first resulted in an unflattering fourth in a field of five in
the Grade 2 Hutcheson at Gulfstream in February - a result that follows decent seconds in the
minor Pasco and Inaugural Stakes at Tampa Bay Downs.
Scaramagna - has six career starts - all in 2012 with two wins, two seconds and a
third place finish. The only time he finished out of the money was in his only stakes action - a
fifth in the minor Chick Lang Stakes at Pimlico in May.
Rass Stone - finished dead last most recently in an Allowance here June 16 th to
follow a sixth in a similar race here on June 3rd. Rass Stone does have a Starter Allowance and a
Maiden Claiming score among his eight career starts.
Well Spelled - has two wins in five starts in 2012 but is coming off a third last time
out in an Allowance Optional Claiming to follow a seventh in the Tom Ridge Stakes at Presque
Isle Downs in May.
