Missile Bay and Who's the Cowboy won $60,000 stakes for 3-year-olds on closing day at Monmouth Park.

Missile Bay ($12.40), trained by Scott Lake and ridden by Aaron Gryder, set a quick pace and held off a late bid from Career Oriented to capture the Mongo Queen for fillies. Missile Bay prevailed by three-quarters of a length in 1:10.13 for the six furlongs.

The New Jersey-bred Who's the Cowboy ($6.80) beat open company in the City Zip. The gelding came off the pace to beat Euro Code by 1 1/4 lengths as he ran the six furlongs in 1:09.04.
