Flay Mignon captures $60,000 Colleen Stakes
OCEANPORT, N.J. (AP) - Flay Mignon battled early with Jonesin for Jerry before putting away and posting a two-length victory in the $60,000 Colleen Stakes at Monmouth Park on Sunday.
Ridden by Paco Lopez, Flay Mignon ran five furlongs over firm turf in 56 3/5 seconds and paid $3, $2.40 and $2.10 as part of an entry with Pray a Novena.
Pure Lady Like rallied to finish second and returned $22 and $10.80. It was another length back to Aibhilin, who paid $3.40 to show.
"I was a little concerned about the turf because of her breeding, but she really impressed me today,'' said trainer Eddie Plesa Jr. said after the 2-year-old filly remained perfect in two starts. "I think she could be one of the best fillies we have in the barn.
