Monmouth: Long Branch Sets up for a Closer


Even with the defections of Jack London and Rush Now the Long Branch Stakes, the 11th of 12 races on this card, should set up for a closer. The most logical horse is Rattlesnake Bridge, but Nacho Saint is a horse to consider strongly, at least underneath the likely favorite. At least. Nacho Saint made a nice middle move behind gate-to-wire winner Moonhanger two back and his latest, a two-turn sprint at Charles Town, was probably too short for him. And how well is trainer Kelly Breen going right now?
