OCEANPORT, N.J. – Sean Avery – the horse, not the hockey player – looked like a superstar Sunday in the $75,900 Longfellow Stakes at Monmouth Park.

After stalking the quick pace set by Awesome Son, Sean Avery took charge at the top of the lane and drew off to an 11 3/4-length win. The victory extended his winning streak to three, after missing all of the 2010 season.

Joe Bravo rode for trainer Allen Iwinski as Sean Avery ran the six furlongs in 1:09.27.

“That was real impressive,” Bravo said. “Around the turn, he was pulling on me and gave me every indication he would be tough. I just held on and enjoyed the ride.”

The 7-5 favorite, Sean Avery paid $4.80 to win.

Awesome Son held second by a neck over Hillswick.

Super Robusto was fourth, followed by He’s So Chic and On the Vineyard.
