Trainer Jason Servis’s $15,000 investment in Ju Ju Eyeballs has paid dividends for both him and owner Ron Lombardi. Since placing third in her first race under Servis this January, Ju Ju Eyeballs has won three straight contests, boosting her lifetime earnings to $103,890.

            “My owner picked her up,” said Servis of Lombardi, who runs under the name of Mr. Amore Stable. “He liked her in her first race when she ran second to Shanghai Bobby (Aqueduct, April 29, 2012), and then came back to beat Itsmyluckyday (Monmouth, June 1, 2012). He told me to take a look at her, I liked her so we dropped on her.”

             A 3-year-old filly by Gators N Bears out of Savvy Lady, Ju Ju Eyeballs returns to Monmouth attempting to stay undefeated in her third start in Oceanport. After breaking her maiden on the main track at Monmouth in 2012, she returned to claim the winners share of a $42,000 allowance in May of this year over the turf. Ju Ju Eyeballs and her female foes will travel 5 ½ furlongs on the grass for the $60,000 Crank It Up Stakes on Saturday.

            Servis believes that the key to Ju Ju Eyeball’s success since the claim has been her change in running style, and he plans to continue his strategy in the Crank It Up.

            “She has natural speed so she tries to shoot to the front,” Servis said, “but in the last few races she’s been sitting off the pace and she really seems to like it. Since then she’s been a different filly.”

            Jockey Paco Lopez gets the call on Ju Ju Eyeballs for the first time in the Crank it Up, which goes as the 10th of an 11-race card on Saturday.
