What's Your Edge, and jockey Joe Bravo, win the $200,000 Colts and Gelding Division of the NATC Futurity at Monmouth Park.

What's Your Edge dueled odds-on favorite Diabolical into submission to take the colt division of the NATC Futurity on Saturday at Monmouth Park.

Sparkling Pink captured the filly division as Monmouth hosted the two $200,000 NATC stakes for the first time.

The National Association of Two-Year-Old Consignors Futurities, both contested at six furlongs, are restricted to 2-year-olds sold at auction this season.

What's Your Edge ($9.80), bought by Klaravich Stables for $150,000 at the March Ocala Breeders Sale, is now 2 for 2 following a very professional effort.

Trained by Rick Violette Jr., What's Your Edge was clocked in 1:08.99 as he drew away to a 2 3/4-length win. It was one of three wins on the afternoon for Joe Bravo, Monmouth's leading rider.

"Rick has a real nice colt on his hands here," Bravo said.

Diabolical, the 1-2 choice, held second by 10 lengths over Rock Creek Pass.

Sparkling Pink, a $130,000 purchase by the Starview Stable at the February Ocala Breeders Sale, scored her second straight win.

A daughter of Marquetry, Sparking Pink spent the season at Monmouth in John Kimmel's barn. Sparkling Pink ($8) was second in her debut and won her maiden next time out in a trouble-filled trip.

She got a smoother journey in the filly Futurity.

Chris DeCarlo kept her in stalking position before Sparkling Pink launched a rally in the lane. She advanced steadily to edge More Than Pretty by a neck with Good Conduct another neck back in third.

"I was very happy with the way she ran," said assistant trainer Patrice Bellet. "This is a great way to finish the Monmouth season."

Sparkling Pink was clocked in 1:11.20. Little Miss Zip, the 4-5 favorite, pressed the pace before fading to eighth.
