OCEANPORT, N.J. – Edgewood Farm’s Joonbi gained command shortly after turning for home and held off the late charge of Myprincessallyson to capture the $45,000 allowance/optional claiming feature at Monmouth Park on Saturday by a half length.

            Trained by Seth Benzel and ridden by Chris DeCarlo, Joonbi stepped the six furlongs over a fast main track in 1:11 3/5 and returned $4.80, $2.80 and $2.60 as the favorite in the field of six fillies and mares.  Myprincessallyson completed the $23.20 exacta and paid $4 and $3.  It was a length and a half back to My Place Anytime, who paid $3.20 to show.

            Saturday’s win was the second in six starts for Joonbi, a 3-year-old daughter of Pollard’s Vision from the Dove Hunt mare Native Trinket.

            Live racing continues for the Meadowlands at Monmouth meet on Sunday, Nov. 12 – gates open 11:30 a.m., first post 12:15 p.m.
