Monmouth: The Key to Nowhere


Some key. Ever a Friend was terrible in the 9th, swinging wide off the turn and shooting blanks through the lane. Give Eibat Coa, aboard the eventual winner, Tactical Weapon, a lot of credit for sensing the pace and getting that runner clear on the lead immediately, and holding him together to win an unlikely photo on the wire.

This upcoming 10th race is a real skullbuster. I'll use a few in here and try to get alive into Bible Belt, an impressive recent maiden winner, in the 11th.
