OCEANPORT, N.J. – Patricia Generazio’s Tune Me In took control right from the start and held off the late charge of Lighthouse Sound to capture the $46,000 allowance/optional claiming feature at Monmouth Park on Sunday. 

            Trained by Bruce Alexander and ridden by Elvis Trujillo, Tune Me In stepped the mile over “good” turf in 1:35 3/5 and paid $7.80, $4.60 and $2.60 as the second-choice in the field of nine colts and geldings.  Lighthouse Sound, who finished a neck back, completed the $43.80 exacta and paid $5.60 and $2.80.  It was nearly two lengths back to post-time favorite Upgrade, who returned $2.40 to show. 

            Sunday’s win was the second this season for Tune Me In, a 4-year-old gelding by Concorde’s Tune from the With Approval mare Beautiful Caroline. 

            Live racing continues at Monmouth Park on Saturday, Sept. 17 – gates open 11:30 a.m., first post 12:50 p.m.  As always, the racetrack is open seven days a week for simulcasting from across the country and around the globe.
