The Eatontown Stakes – Grade III
1 1/16 Mile Turf Stake Purse $100.00 Filly & Mare 3 Year Olds And Up.
1st Darkest Days, trained by Mb Stables
This was clearly the best three year old in the race and the three year olds were clearly favoured by the weight allowance so it was no surprise to see her come home the winner. This makes it six wins from nine and although she won nicely today and it looks like her future will be on the turf.
2nd Tightness, trained by EasyMoneyStables
At biggish odds because of her draw she ran on the pace and really forced the winner to pull out all the stops. A great effort from a consistent filly.
3rd Twin Eagles, trained by Big D Stable
Trailed the field but finished nicely for third, there will be plenty more to come from this lightly raced filly.
4th Christine, trained by John Henry
A classy mare but she never had a chance at the weights.
This race was just too predictable as many such races are. Which three year old was going to win and could any of the older horses split them? Predictable won the day.
