Inexperience no drawback


OCEANPORT, N.J. - Two horses making their stakes debuts look best of the six entered in the $50,000 Serena's Song Stakes for 3-year-old fillies Saturday at Monmouth Park.

New York shippers Dreamers Glory and Dubai Fall are coming off impressive victories, and they should attract plenty of betting.

Dreamers Glory, trained by Joe Orseno, has put together three consecutive strong races, which could make her the favorite. In her last race, May 26 at Belmont, she stretched out to a route for the first time in her career and won by 2 1/2 lengths. Saturday's race is at one mile and 70 yards, a distance that seems to suit Dreamers Glory. Norberto Arroyo Jr. has ridden her in the last two starts, both allowance wins, and will come down to ride her Saturday.

Dubai Fall is coming off a romp in the mud against maidens. Trainer Kiaran McLaughlin does not ship to Monmouth often, but when he does, the horse is usually live. Dubai Fall ran once as a 2-year-old last fall at Arlington Park, and then went to Dubai and ran third in a maiden race at Nad Al Sheba. He crushed a field of eight maidens at Belmont by 14 1/4 lengths in his last start, at 1 1/16 miles, and seems to have appreciated the longer distance.

Maresha and Spelling have met twice already this year. The last matchup came May 22 in an allowance at Delaware Park, and Maresha, sent off at 5-1, went to the lead and won by five lengths. Spelling, sent off as the 1-5 favorite, was dueled into the ground by Maresha and ran second.

Spelling, trained by Francis Campitelli, finished second in the $75,000 Go for Wand Stakes at Delaware on May 4, a race in which the John Servis-trained Maresha ran fourth. Both horses have stakes experience in their favor.

Genteel World ran second in the one-mile San Jose Stakes at Bay Meadows April 20 and has been consistent on dirt and turf. He has been training well for Jeff Bonde over the Monmouth strip.

Bill Mott ships in Sixtyone Margaux from Belmont for her first stakes appearance. She won a May 31 one-other-than allowance at Belmont and has been well bet in all four lifetime starts. Julian Pimentel picks up the mount.
