Sense of Style surprise entrant


OCEANPORT, N.J. - Sense of Style was a surprise entrant in the $60,000 Revidere Stakes for 3-year-old fillies Saturday at Monmouth Park.

Trainer Patrick Biancone was looking for a comeback spot for the filly, who shot to the top of the 2-year-old ranks last summer when she debuted with three straight wins, including the Grade 2 Spinaway at Saratoga and the Grade 1 Matron Stakes at Belmont Park.

last ran in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies, finishing ninth and suffering a chipped ankle bone.

"We gave her plenty of time to recover," said Biancone, who had also considered the Grade 1 Acorn Stakes Saturday at Belmont Park for Sense of Style's comeback.

Then the Revidere at a mile and 70 yards came into focus.

"Why not?" Biancone said. "You know how much I like Monmouth Park."

Biancone had great success last summer shipping horses from his Saratoga base to win Monmouth stakes. Lion Heart won the Grade 1 Haskell Invitational and the

Grade 3 Long Branch Breeders' Cup Stakes here, and Pomeroy won the Grade 3 Jersey Shore Breeders' Cup.

Biancone found a soft spot to ease his filly back into action. None of her four rivals has ever run in a stakes race.

"We didn't want to come back in too hard a spot," Biancone said. "She is a Grade 1 filly and will have to run more difficult races later. We were very happy the race filled and we're happy to be in it."

Joe Bravo will ride.

Kiaran McLaughlin entered , who was second in a Belmont allowance race last time out. She is in good form, as she won her maiden and a first-level allowance race in her last two starts. A consistent filly, Bayou Breeze has never finished worse than second in five career starts.

Devine Will has also been running in New York. She won her maiden at the end of the Aqueduct meet and finished second by a head in her allowance debut.

The in Thing will ship in from Philadelphia Park. She won her maiden last time out in her fourth attempt.

, from the Joe Orseno barn, is the only Monmouth-based runner in the field. She finished third in a Monmouth allowance on May 22 in a very wide trip and will be making her first start beyond 6 1/2 furlongs.
