Monmouth: Down Goes Midst


Midst, the heavy favorite in the 3rd race, the Just Smashing Stakes, didn't put up much of a fight in the lane once she came under pressure on the turn and she ended up off the board, disappointing the mini bridgejumpers who overflowed the show pool.

Those players who had a "Funny Feeling", and followed that hunch, were rewarded when Funny Feeling scored, paying $13.20. Full of Gut was clear for 2nd, completing an exacta comprised of the two pace stalkers. Midst, who set the pace on a loose lead while a bit rank down the backstretch, tired to 4th.
