OCEANPORT, N.J. - Trainer Marty Wolfson and Farnsworth Stables enjoyed a one-two finish as Jehan beat Bronx City Girl in the $75,900 Red Cross Stakes on Sunday at Monmouth Park.

Joe Bravo was aboard as Jehan, part of the early pace battle, held off her stablemate by 1 1/2 lengths in the six-furlong race for fillies and mares. D’wild Ride got third.

 It was a productive return to Monmouth for the 5-year-old Jehan. She captured a third-level allowance race here last summer and had gone winless in five starts since then.

The entry paid $6.40 to win. The time was 1:10.87

Artisanal, making her stakes debut, extended her winning streak to three in the $72,000 Little Silver for 3-year-old fillies on the turf.

She split rivals to beat Salary Drive by 1 1/2 lengths with Chris DeCarlo aboard for trainer Todd Pletcher.

“We were boxed in around the far turn, but I wasn’t worried,” DeCarlo said. “She’s the type of horse that you can wait for an opening rather than look for one. I finally got out at the eighth pole and it was all her from there.”

Artisanal ($4.80) ran one mile in 1:35.77.
