Monmouth: Smokey Glacken cruises


Smokey Glacken ($4.20) used her superior early speed to score a 2 1/2-length victory in the $50,000 Forward Gal Stakes for 2-year-old fillies at Monmouth Park.

"We know she has a ton of speed," said trainer James Jerkens. "I'd like to see now if we can take her back and sit off horses."

Jerkens said Smokey Glacken, a half-sister to 1997 sprint champion Smoke Glacken, could make her next start in the Grade 3 Astorita, a 6 1/2-furlong stakes at Belmont Park, on Oct. 12.
