Jersey invader looks dangerous


Monmouth Park's big purses this summer may have lured some New York horses to the Jersey Shore, but it is a Monmouth-based horse who could steal the money here in Friday's featured third-level allowance race at six furlongs.

Ocarson, trained by Butch Reid, comes out of a fifth-place finish, beaten only two lengths, in a similar race as this on June 4. It was the only time she finished worse than third. Reid said Ocarson came out of that race with 104-degree temperature.

"I'm not sure I didn't run a sick horse," Reid said. "She did run well if that was the case. She didn't go to the track for eight or 10 days [afterward], but she seems to have come back well and had a nice little breeze the other day."

Sneaky Girl, who finished second to Bed o' Roses runner-up Qualia in this condition last out, is likely the horse to beat.

Right to Rule, Powder Princess, Miss Red Delicious, and Heaven's Voice complete the field.
