Introduced by Albin Jimenez won the $ 100,000 Incredible Revenge Stakes at Monmouth Park.
It took a little longer than he would have liked, but trainer Jorge Duarte, Jr. has finally found the key to getting the most out of his talented 5 year old mare Introduced.
Introduced stayed calm leading up to the race for the second straight start, taking a three-quarter win at the $ 100,000 Incredible Revenge Stakes on Saturday at Monmouth Park in Oceanport, NJ, adding a win to the slop she earned in the slop with grass takes added the Smart N Fancy at the Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, NY, a year ago.
Shortly before the early speed duel between Running Memories and the race favorite Miss Auramet, Introduced drove past both of them to take her second consecutive win on the pitch and eighth place overall in 19 career starts.
With recent losses, Duarte has said that she often introduced losing races before they were even performed because she can get so nervous and nervous. But a new routine of having a pony escort her to the paddock seems to keep El Padrino’s Maryland-bred daughter from getting overly upset.
“I think we did a good job keeping them calm before the race,” said Duarte, who won both grass sprints on the map and is now 9-for-20 on the meet. “That was always the biggest fight with her. She helped us because she wasn’t that excited. She was better today before the race.
“We did the same thing we did in the previous race (a nose win over Miss Auramet in a grant at Monmouth on July 23) with the paddock routine and brought her on the pony and she was fine. I felt good putting them on. Everything was smooth. It’s been going really big lately. I am very happy with her now. “
Introduced’s winning time for the 5½ stadiums over a solid grass pitch was 1: 02.50.
Running Memories, which dropped the early fractions of: 22.20 and: 44.51, stayed in second place, a length ahead of Miss Auramet.
Owned by Colts Neck Stables and ridden by Albin Jimenez, Introduced paid $ 10.60 to win.
“I rode her for the first time, even though I petted her a couple of times. She’s a nice filly, ”said Jimenez. “I’ve had a nice ride behind the speed. Jorge told me there is speed in her, so just pause and see where she is and take it from there. It couldn’t have gone better. I had a nice, nice position. She is a very beautiful filly. I can say that after I’ve ridden it once. “
Has now introduced five wins from 15 career grass starts. The winner’s share of $ 60,000 raised her career profit to $ 384,801.
The race continues at Monmouth Park on Sunday, with the $ 100,000 Jersey Shore Stakes leading an 11-race card. The popular Jersey Shore Food Truck Festival will then also end its second day.
