Oceanport, N.J. – Don Bielak and Kevin Callinan’s Miss Tallahassee produced a powerful stretch drive to win the $45,000 allowance feature at Monmouth Park on Sunday under apprentice rider Eddie Jurado.

            Trained by Don Bielak, Miss Tallahassee stepped the mile and a sixteenth over a fast main track in 1:45 1/5 and returned $15.40, $5.60 and $2.80.  Ms Glory Be, who was nearly two lengths behind the winner, completed the $34.80 exacta and paid $3.40 and $2.40.  It was another seven lengths back to pacesetter Witch’s Orchard, who paid $2.20 to show.  Sunday’s feature was originally scheduled for the turf, but scratched down to five runners after rains forced the race onto the main track.

            A 5-year-old mare by Silver Deputy from the Torrential mare Torropy, Miss Tallahassee earned her second win this season and her fifth lifetime.

            Live racing continues at Monmouth Park on Saturday, Oct. 1 – gates open 11:30 a.m., with first post set for 12:50 p.m.  As always, the racetrack is open seven days a week for simulcasting from across the country and around the globe.
