– Catherine M. Wills’s Funfair battled early with I Am Discreet before putting
away that rival and all the rest to capture the $60,000 Colleen Stakes by 3 ¼ lengths
at Monmouth Park on Sunday.
by a crowd of 13,751, Funfair, conditioned by Christophe Clement, covered the
five furlongs over firm turf in :56.68 and paid $3.20, $2.40 and $2.10 as the
odds-on choice in the field of eight 2-year-old fillies. I Am Discreet held the place, completing the
$9.80 exacta and paying $3.40 and $3.20.
It was another head back to hard-charging Doubled, who paid $6.20 to
really special horse,” said winning jockey Joe Bravo. “You had to be impressed with today’s effort.”
of More Than Ready from the Distant View mare Fleuron, Funfair is now a perfect
two-for-two, earning $78,000 for her connections.
