During the stretch of Sunday’s seventh race at Monmouth Park, track announcer Larry Collmus found himself in the middle of every spousal argument ever waged. 

            “Mywifenosevrything.  Thewifedoesntknow.  They’re one-two.  Of course they are!”   

             In the end, it was Mywifenosevrything in front, and Collmus’ call of the action has since become a national phenomenon and a viral sensation on YouTube.   

            On Monday, ESPN’s Sportscenter made the ‘wife’ call the third best play of the day in their Top Ten plays.  Collmus’s call has since been seen on national broadcasts Good Morning America, The Today Show, and World News with Diane Sawyer, and has garnered world-wide interest from media networks in countries such as the United Kingdom, Canada and New Zealand.  Domestically, in addition to local affiliates in New York and Philadelphia, national outlets such as CNN and The Associated Press have also expressed interest in the now-famous race call.   

            The nationally syndicated Inside Edition was on-track at Monmouth Park Wednesday for interviews with the horse’s owners and is expected to feature the race, as well as an in-studio interview with Collmus, on tonight’s broadcast. 

            On YouTube alone, the video has already received nearly 69,000 views as of noon on Wednesday. 

            Welch and Giorgio Stable’s Mywifenosevrything, ridden by jockey Elvis Trujillo for trainer Jane Cibelli, went off the 2-1 betting favorite in the 10-horse field that lined up for the $25,000 claiming event on Sunday while Thewifedoesntknow, ridden by Carlos Marquez, Jr. for trainer Eddie Broome, was sent off at odds of 6-1.  Neither horse was claimed. 

            Mywifenosevrything captured the $22,550 winner’s share of the $41,000 purse, which increased her lifetime earnings to $65,500.  The 3-year-old filly has won three races in her 10-race career. 

            Thewifedoesntknow brought home $8,200 for her second-place finish bringing her career earnings over $50,000.   

            Backers of Mywifenosevrything received $6.20 for a $2 win wager.  Fans of Thewifedoesntknow were rewarded with $5.20 for a $2 place wager.  The ‘wife’ exacta returned $29.40 for a $2 wager. 

            Monmouth Park’s 2010 racing season runs through Sunday, Nov. 21.
