OCEANPORT, N.J. - Soundwave was a dominant winner in the filly division and Poseidon’s Warrior rolled to a convincing win at 9-1 against the colts and geldings as Monmouth Park hosted the National Association of Two-Year-Old Consignors Futurity on Sunday.

The two races were open to horses who cataloged in 2010 with a paid advertising fund fee.

Soundwave extended her winning streak to three with a 51/4-length victory over Lady Malkin, giving trainer Ronny Werner a one-two finish in the $164,867 filly division of the NATC Futurity.

Soundwave rallied three-wide in the lane, pulling away in the final stages of her stakes debut with Terry Thompson aboard.

“The race shaped up like we thought,” Werner said. “She’s always shown speed in her races, but will wait to use it until she’s called upon. She’s a very smart filly, and makes my job easier.”

Soundwave ($8) ran the six furlongs in 1:12.07.

Poseidon’s Warrior improved to 2 for 3 with his seven-length romp in the colts and geldings division of the NATC Futurity, worth $167,300. Frankie Pennington rode for trainer Butch Reid as Poseidon’s Warrior was clocked in 1:10.55.

“Usually he’s a little slow breaking out of the gate, but today he broke running,” said Pennington. “Around the three-eighths pole, he was pulling and wanted to start running early, so I had to keep him relaxed. Once I asked him, he ran on really well.”

Value Added Tax finished second with Printing Press third.

Bail Out the Cat, the 3-5 favorite following a second-place finish in the Grade 2 Saratoga Special, rallied wide into the lane but could not sustain the bid and finished seventh.

Racing resumes at Monmouth on Saturday with a $53,161 carryover on the pick five, a 50-cent wager with a 15 percent takeout.
