Big win for I’m Already Sexy


Trainer Wayne Catalano sent out two nice winners over the weekend at Monmouth Park. He upset the promising French fillies Kenzadargent and Stellar Path in the Grade 3 Eatontown Stakes on Saturday at 7-1 with I’m Already Sexy. On Sunday, Irish You Well got back on track for Catalano by winning a second-level optional-claiming race at 1 1/16 miles. Irish You Well, the winner of last year’s Long Branch Stakes at Monmouth, was ridden out to a 2 1/2-length win.

Paco Lopez was aboard both of Catalano’s winners.

I’m Already Sexy, 5, has won three graded stakes. She won the Grade 3 Modesty in 2014 and the Grade 3 Pucker Up in 2013.

“She is a really nice mare,” Catalano said.  “She likes to sit just off the pace, and with age, she has learned to settle.”

The next filly-and-mare turf stakes on the Monmouth Park schedule is the Grade 3, $150,000 Matchmaker Stakes on Haskell Day, Aug. 2.
