Harvatt Runs In Both Stakes Monday

Posted Saturday, May 25, 2013



Trainer Charlie Harvatt is slated to run a horse in each of Monday’s stakes races at Monmouth Park, the Red Cross and The Little Silver, both of which boast a $60,000 purse.

            Taylors Irish, a 7-year-old mare by Drewman, is set to compete in the six furlong Red Cross Stakes. She is coming off of a second place finish at Tampa Bay Downs (April 6) where she was edged by a neck at the wire.

            “She ran a big race last out and we’ve freshened her up since then,” said Harvatt. “She had a nice little breeze here the other day and is hopefully back to her old self. She always tries and I expect her to run well.”

            Just one race after the Red Cross, Harvatt has Wellspring Legacy set to run in the Little Silver Stakes at one mile on the turf. The 3-year-old filly is coming off two straight wins at Tampa since being claimed by Harvatt.

            “I had been watching her for a while down at Tampa looking to claim her and finally I took a shot,” Harvatt said. “She’s a nice little filly. We’re shooting high with her, but she deserves a shot. The whole reason I took her was for turf. She’s two-for-two with me. I’m hoping she can get out there with an easy lead, and have something left for the lane.”

            Francisco Maysonett will ride Taylor’s Irish in the Red Cross, while Ramon Moya gets the call on Wellspring Legacy on Monday.
