A Magnificent Stakes Saturday along the Jersey Shore

On to the Jersey Shore for Stakes Saturday where we take in a highly competitive route for the gals.

Monmouth Park Race 11 {Monmouth Oaks~G3~1 1/16 mile~3 year old~Fillies~Stakes}
A group of ten beautiful fillies will go to the gate in this graded stakes feature.  There is enough speed to keep an honest pace.  All of these gals speed figs are very close. Most have positive in the money records.  It should be a very exciting race.

#5 Cassatt (Clark / L. Jones) might have a slight edge with the fourth highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and three supreme workouts.  This lightly raced daughter of Tapit is 100% in the money from three career starts.  She comes into this race off a win at Delaware Park.  This gal should be tracking the pace ready to make her move.
$2 WIN  /  $3 SHOW.

#7 Size (Alvarado / Mott) should challenge with the highest last out speed number, a four race progression, and two stout workouts.  This daughter of First Samurai may be hoping to control the pace or sit right off it. She holds the highest speed number at the distance, albeit over a muddy track. 
$2 PLACE / $2 SHOW.

#1 Ria Antonia (Radosevich / Amoss) will contend with the second highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and three superb workouts.  This daughter of Rockport Harbor should track and close diligently.  She has the second highest speed number at the distance that sports a 75% in the money record from four tries.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#9 Joint Return (Carmouche / Servis) will be in the mix with a couple of decent last out speed numbers, a two race progression, and two strong peaking workouts. This daughter of Include will be closing fast into a wicked pace. She shows solid in the money records at the distance and overall.

#8 Offlee Golden (Bisono / DeMasi) could be the big surprise with the third highest last out speed number, a three race progression, and one confident workout.  This daughter of Offlee Wild will be stretching out to a route for the first time.  She has significant closing capability which could make her dangerous.
