Monmouth: Pale Ambition Solid in Defeat


Pale Ambition, a firster from the barn of Kelly Breen, impressed in defeat in the opener, making a swift move to reach contention before the field hit the turn and holding gamely late behind only the winner, fellow firster Outstanding Hope. The latter was well bet at 5/2 but Pale Ambition outran his 13-1 odds, surprisingly high given the barn involved.
