      My Place Anytime. That’s the name of the 4-year-old chestnut filly, but it could

be the gauntlet she’s throwing down at Monmouth Park.

            In Sunday’s $32,000 allowance/optional claiming race, My Place Anytime shoots for her fifth consecutive win on the main track, and should she be victorious, she’ll tie another 4-year-old filly, Winiliscious, for the most wins at the current meet although Winiliscious has won just three straight. Raging Daoust, a 4-year-old gelding, has also won four races in a row during the meet.

            My Place Anytime was claimed by Yvon Belsoeur for owner Bruno Schickedanz for $5,000 when winning her second start here by nine lengths back on June 2. While moving up the ladder and racing at her ideal distance of six furlongs, she’s now won her last four races by a combined total of 22 ¼ lengths.

            “I think she trains herself,” said Belsouer, who conditioned Yummy With Butter when he won a pair of Grade 3 races, the Cliffhanger Stakes and the Oceanport Stakes, here in 2011. “You don’t have to be a genius to train this kind of horse.”

            Belsoeur, who emigrated from LaGacilly, France to Canada and worked for American and Canadian Hall of Fame trainer Roger Attfield, among others, before striking out on his own, has a dozen horses in the barn. It’s no secret who is the favorite.

            “I love her,” he said of My Place Anytime. “I love her frame, I love her attitude, and I love her heart.  I just hope that I get to keep her.”

            My Place Anytime was bred in Florida by Monmouth Park leading owner Patricia Generazio. In 15 starts, she has five wins, four seconds and three thirds for career earnings of $90,877. Leading rider Elvis Trujillo, who has been in the irons for all of My Place Anytime’s victories this year, gets the call again on Sunday.

            Chuck Spina, the trainer of Winiliscious, might give her the opportunity to win six races here this season. He said that he may try the filly going a route of ground against non-winners of two other than company before the meet ends on October 7.
