GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas - Jockey Jon Court closed out a dominating afternoon at Lone Star Park in the 10th race on Monday, when Mad Adam charged to a length and a quarter win in the $200,000 , giving Court his third stakes win on a program of six stakes worth $1 million.

Court also won the Grade 3, $300,000 Lone Star Park Handicap with Supah Blitz and the $150,000 Stonerside with R Fast Lady on Monday. The triple comes on the heels of the stakes double Court registered at Lone Star on May 14, when he won the Grade 3, $300,000 Lone Star Derby with Southern Africa and the $75,000 Ford Express with Rodeo's Castle.

"I'm grateful to those who give me the mounts," said Court.

In the Pin Oak, Mad Adam ($13.80) raced well back as 2-5 favorite Dubleo set fractions of 23.80 seconds for the opening quarter and 48.60 seconds for the half mile over yielding turf. Mad Adam advanced on the turn, was blocked into the stretch, and closed fast when clear, covering the mile and a sixteenth for 3-year-olds in 1:47.

Court rode the winner for trainer Barry Germany. Mad Adam earned $120,000 for the win, which improved his record to three wins from eight starts and earnings of $165,726. Mad Adam is a son of Service Stripe and races for Millennium Farms.

The holiday Monday program, called Lone Star Million Day, is the richest card in Texas. Attendance on an afternoon in which it rained on an off was 13,838, while handle on the 12-race card was $3,997,601.
