It took every inch of the mile, but Raymar Stables LLC’s Silent Appeal ran down Itsagoodtendollars to capture the $46,000 allowance/optional claiming feature Friday at Monmouth Park. 

            Trained by Gregg Sacco and ridden by Chris DeCarlo, Silent Appeal tracked the eventual runner-up through early fractions of :23 3/5 and :46 4/5.  In the shadow of the wire, the 3-year-old New Jersey-bred colt by Hook and Ladder surged on the muddy main track to win by a nose. 

            The 5-2 second choice in the field of four colts and geldings, Silent Appeal returned $7 and $4.80.  Itsagoodtendollars completed a $30.40 exacta and returned $5.20 to place.  Odds-on favorite Framed finished a length back in third.   

            It was the second consecutive win and fourth of the year for Silent Appeal who now boasts a record of 4-0-2 from 10 career starts. 

            Live racing continues at Monmouth Park on Saturday, October 29 – gates open 11:30 a.m., first post 12:50 p.m.
