Twice Worthy

Race Summary

On Aug. 8, 1970, the third running of the Monmouth Invitational Handicap went to Saddle Rock Farm’s Twice Worthy, the $2.20-1 favorite who beat 27-1 Roman Scout by four lengths. Jimmy Conway trained Twice Worthy and John Ruane was the rider. Twice Worthy ran the fastest mile and an eighth in Monmouth history, getting the distance in 1:48 3/5, but the mark stood for just one year. The third finisher in 1970, who went off at 8-1, was Dust Commander, who had upset the Kentucky Derby in May, but never recaptured that form.
