Cryptocandiac pushed past Tough Market in late stretch to post a length and a quarter victory in the $45,000 allowance feature at Monmouth Park on Saturday, covering the mile and 70 yards in 1:43 1/5. 

            Trained by Anthony Margotta Jr. and ridden by seven-pound apprentice Eddie Jurado, Cryptocandiac paid $32.60, $15.60 and $7.80 in the field of nine fillies and mares.  Tough Market completed the $258.20 exacta and returned $6.40 to place and $4.40 to show.  It was another length and a half back to Ms Glory Be, who paid $3.80. 

            Saturday’s win was the first this season and second lifetime for Cryptocandiac, a 3-year-old by Candy Ride from the Citidancer mare Citi Pearl.  She races in the colors of Estrorace LLC and Rookie Thoroughbred.
