            Oceanport, N.J. – Nirvana Stables’ She’s All Ready battled through the lane with the rail skimming April Gaze before pulling clear late to post a half-length victory in the $41,000 allowance/optional claiming feature at Monmouth Park on Sunday afternoon before a crowd of 12,860. 

            Trained by James T. Ryerson, She’s All Ready went the six furlongs over a fast main track in 1:11.03 and paid $4.40, $2.60 and $2.20 as the favorite in the field of six fillies and mares.  April Gaze completed the $15 exacta and returned $3.20 and $2.60.  It was another 4 ½ lengths back to My Country, who paid $3.20 to show. 

            “She settled well early on,” said winning jockey Frankie Pennington.  “When we turned for home that other horse shot up the fence which got her attention and she ran hard with her before putting her away.” 

            A 4-year-old by Girolamo from the El Prado mare Prominent, She’s All Ready has won five of her 19 lifetime outings.
