Armand A. Delaperriere’s Rolling Yona sat off the early pace before pushing through on the rail and drawing clear by two lengths to capture the $46,000 allowance/optional claiming feature at Monmouth Park on Friday.

            Trained by Kathleen Demasi, Rolling Yona stepped the mile and 70 yards over a fast main track in 1:42 and returned $12, $6.20 and $3.40.  Speighter Man rallied to complete the $117.60 exacta and paid $10.60 and $5.20.  It was another 7 ½ lengths back to Romp City, who paid $3.60 to show.

            “I had a perfect trip,” said winning jockey John Bisono.  “He broke sharp and I had great position the whole way.  He was waiting for me to ask and when I asked, he went.”

            A 4-year-old colt by Yonaguska from the Yes It’s True mare Rolling True, Rolling Yona has won five of her 12 starts.

            Live racing continues at Monmouth Park on Saturday, June 22 – gates open 11:30 a.m., first post 12:50 p.m.
