GoodTimeHadByAll Goes All The Way In Friday’s Feature

July 07, 2017



            Oceanport, N.J. – Ten Strike Racing’s Goodtimehadbyall broke sharply, sprinted to the lead and never looked back, scoring a length and a quarter win in Friday’s $41,000 allowance optional claiming feature at Monmouth Park. 

            Trained by Jorge Navarro, Goodtimehadbyall covered the mile and seventy yards in 1:39.60 after setting swift early fractions of :22.31 and :44.92 and paid $5.60, $4.60, $3. Late-charging Arcature completed the $49.80 exacta and paid $8.20 and $4.40. It was another length and a half back to Doctor Peter, who paid $2.20 to show. 

            “He was ready to go today,” said winning jockey Orlando Bocachica. “He was going fast early and I tried to pull him in a little, but he just wanted to go. He got a little tired in the end, but kept fighting.” 

            The 9-year-old gelding by Quiet American out of the A.P. Indy mare Miss Brickyard improves his record to 15-16-10, making it 3-for-4 over the Monmouth Park main track.  

Racing continues at Monmouth Park on Saturday with an 11-race card. Gates will open at 11:30 a.m. with first post set for 12:50 p.m.
