Monmouth Park on Saturday by a half length.
Seth Benzel and ridden by Chris DeCarlo, Joonbi stepped the six furlongs over a

in the field of six fillies and mares.
Myprincessallyson completed the $23.20 exacta and paid $4 and $3. It was a length and a half back to My Place
Anytime, who paid $3.20 to show.

Vision from the Dove Hunt mare Native Trinket.
