Peter D. Kelly’s Hobbs ran down Fan Base in the stretch to post a length and a quarter victory in the $46,000 allowance/optional claiming feature at Monmouth Park on Friday.

            Trained by Kathy Mongeon, Hobbs stepped the mile and a sixteenth over firm turf in 1:40 3/5 and paid $4.20, $3, $2.40 as the 6-5 choice in the field of seven colts and geldings.  Fan Base completed the $23.60 exacta and paid $4.20 and $2.80.  It was another length and a quarter back to Midnite Silver, who paid $2.40 to show.

            “He put me in the perfect spot,” said winning jockey Kendrick Carmouche.  “Joe (jockey Bravo aboard Fan Base) swept past me around the 3/8ths pole, but that was alright since I had so much horse.  After that I made my move and he was gone.”

            A 4-year-old gelding by Put It Back from the Dehere mare Minister Abbey, Hobbs has now won six of 16 lifetime starts.

            Live racing continues at Monmouth Park on Saturday, June 29 – gates open 11:30 a.m., first post 12:50 p.m.
