Navarro gears up for Monmouth Park's season


Trainer Jorge Navarro came within a half-length of going 4 for 4 on last Saturday’s Charles Town Classic card. All of his runner’s that day have been sent to a New Jersey farm to prepare for the Monmouth Park meet, which begins May 13.

Navarro, who will be shooting for his fifth consecutive Monmouth training title, said on Saturday he will be sending his Florida-based stable to Monmouth in stages over the next few weeks.

At Charles Town, Navarro won the $100,000 Sugar Maple with Mia Torri, the $50,000 Russell Road with Shaft of Light, and the $35,000 Caixa Eletronica overnight handicap with Shaft of Light. He missed winning the $1.25 million Charles Town Classic by two necks when War Story finished third behind Imperative and Matt King Coal.
