Trainer Tim Kelly had hoped that a series of solid works would have the 4-year-old gelding ready for a winning effort.\r\nAs usual, Awesome Son bounded right to the lead. He lacked a stretch punch, though, finishing 7 3/4 lengths behind This Ones For Phil.\r\nKelly is more optimistic about this spot, where Awesome Son has post 2 in the eight-horse field going six furlongs.\r\n&ldquo;The last one, he just got a little tired in the stretch from his early efforts,&rdquo; Kelly said. &ldquo;As ready as you think they are, some of them still need one. He ran his eyeballs out. He just couldn&rsquo;t get it done the last sixteenth.\r\n&ldquo;He came out of it great. Hopefully, we can turn the tables and get the job done this time. He&rsquo;s doing super.&rdquo;\r\nKelly also likes this lineup better than the Decathlon.\r\n&ldquo;This looks like a pretty good spot,&rdquo; Kelly said. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s not near as tough as the last one. We just need to get a good break. He&rsquo;s not one to mess around. He just gets out and goes.&rdquo;\r\nThat brazen speed carried Awesome Son to three straight wins last summer, including two at Monmouth. He went to the sidelines with a knee chip that required surgical removal following an overnight stakes victory at Penn National where he hit a career-best 100 Beyer Speed Figure.\r\nUsual rider Francisco Maysonett will be aboard.\r\nSean Avery, the horse not the hockey player, will break just to Awesome Son&rsquo;s inside on the rail.\r\nA 5-year-old gelding, Sean Avery will be making only his eighth career start. He has been highly effective when he runs, with a record of 4-0-2.\r\nSean Avery is on a two-race winning streak with victories at Gulfstream Park and Parx Racing. Joe Bravo, Monmouth&rsquo;s leading jockey, rides for trainer Allen Iwinski.\r\nThe race will be the Monmouth debut of Whistle Pig, a veteran of the Pennsylvania-bred sprint stakes wars. A 7-year-old gelding trained by Andrew Carter, Whistle Pig has earned $873,278 with a record of 16-15-11 from 52 starts.\r\nFormer Monmouth regular Dale Beckner will ride.\r\nOn the Vineyard, Hillswick, Mannington, He&rsquo;s So Chic and Super Robusto complete the field.
