Monmouth: Bravo, Clement connect in Colleen with Funfair

Funfair easly wins the $60,000 Colleen under Joe Bravo.

OCEANPORT, N.J. - Jockey Joe Bravo and trainer Christophe Clement connected again at Monmouth Park, winning this time with Funfair in the $60,000 Colleen Stakes on Sunday.

The Bravo-Clement tandem is 6-1-1 in 10 starts at the meet. This was one of their easiest scores.

Funfair, the 3-5 favorite of the crowd of 13,751, rolled to a 3 1/4 length win over I Am Discreet in the five-furlong turf dash for 2-year-old fillies. The time was 56.68 over the course rated firm.

Those two hooked up right from the start with I Am Discreet taking the lead and Funfair stalking every step. Funfair took off in the lane when Bravo gave the signal.

“You got to be impressed with today’s effort,” said Bravo following the Colleen, his third win on the card. “That was gorgeous. I never did anything.”

Funfair is unbeaten in two starts, having won her initial outing at Belmont Park by an almost identical margin, 3 1/2 lengths.

The Colleen is the prep for meet’s top event for 2-year-old fillies: the $100,000 Sorority at six furlongs on the main track on Sept. 2.

Doubled got third followed by Go Kitten Go, A Lover’s Question, Trish’s Wish, Jane’s Heir and Lavende.

I can't believe it's been 7 years (I had to look it up myself, seems like only yesterday), but why would you name your horse after a high-profile runner that famously broke down in the Breeders Cup? If nothing else seems like bad karma.

Another standout filly, the good 2 yr olds this yr seem to be much the best.
