Partyallnightlong tries turf in Gilded Time at Monmouth


Mike Farrell

OCEANPORT, N.J. – Sometimes it takes a while for a claim to pan out.

Richard Malouf and Eddie Broome won a 12-way shake to get Party to Party for $10,000 in April 2005 at Gulfstream Park. The mare never raced again, but the claim can’t be called a bust now that she is making her mark as a broodmare.

Partyallnightlong, her very quick son, makes his stakes debut Monday at Monmouth Park in the $100,000 Gilded Time Stakes for 3-year-old turf sprinters.

The Gilded Time and the $100,000 Sorority for 2-year-old fillies top the Labor Day card that closes out the summer meet.

Racing continues with the Monmouth fall meet, Sept. 11 to Nov. 21 on a Saturday and Sunday schedule.

Partyallnightlong, 4 for 5 at Monmouth this year, makes his grass debut against nine rivals in the 5 1/2 furlong race. He could make this a bonanza weekend for his dam.

Camp Party, his half-brother, won a 2-year-old maiden race here on Friday. Party to Party is now a perfect 2 for 2: two runners, two winners for Broome and Malouf.

“We just got lucky,” Broome said.

In preparation, Broome sent Partyallnightlong out for his first turf breeze on Wednesday, four furlongs in 51.40 seconds with jockey Carlos Marquez Jr. aboard. The New Jersey-bred colt seemed very much at home on the new surface.

“We weren’t worried about the time,” Broome said of the workout. “I was on a pony and he was trying to knock me off when we were on the dirt. He was playing around. As soon as he got on the turf, he completely forgot about me and the pony. He was really amazed by the grass. Galloping out, he just didn’t want to stop.”

If all goes well Monday, Broome is looking to run Partyallnightlong in the Gallant Bob Stakes at Parx Racing on Oct. 9.

That’s jumping ahead. The Gilded Time came up tough with Bridgetown the likely favorite following his win in the Latham Stakes on the turf at Saratoga.

A chestnut colt trained by Ken McPeek, Bridgetown was the pacesetting runner-up in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf last November.

Flamin’ Hot, winner of the Anderson Fowler Stakes on a disqualification earlier this meet, was a strong closing second to Bridgetown in the Latham.

Trainer Mike Trombetta sends out two as separate betting interests: That’sthequestion and Close to the Edge.

Sorority: Red’s Round Table one to beat

The 58th running of the six-furlong Sorority drew only six runners.

Red’s Round Table has had the most success, and is a perfect 2 for 2 as the only multiple winner in the field.

Pomeroys Pistol, an impressive 6 1/2-length winner in her debut here, takes the stakes leap, as does Maple Forest who won at first asking at Saratoga.

K. R.’s Jazz, the only New Jersey-bred in the field, showed sharp improvement from her debut in mid June to a five-length win on July  2 with the addition of Lasix.

“It was more the race over the track that really helped, that got her to win like she did,” said trainer Mary Hartmann.

She hasn’t run since.

“She was sick but she’s doing fine, training well,” Hartmann said. “She’s got attitude. I’ve got to say that about her.”

Eddie Castro will ride.
