Monmouth: Speed wins the opener

Email

The 1st race exacta was comprised of the two favorites, in reverse order, so it's probably silly to label the track with any kind of bias. But the way the race was run sure indicates that it may be wise to keep a close eye on the next couple of races on the main track, because the winner, Mister Alimony, looked beat on the turn but just kept on going and wasn't even threatened late. Further, he stopped on a loose lead last time in a race with little pace. Going for Gold, the 2nd speed in the race, completed the two-speed exacta.
