Angela Renee cruises in Lady’s Secret
From a Monmouth Park release
Don Alberto Stable’s Angela Renee sat off the early speed of Genre before moving by the pacesetter and opening up to an impressive two-length score in the $100,000 Lady’s Secret Stakes at Monmouth Park on the 4th of July holiday card.
Trained by Chad Brown, Angela Renee went the mile and 70 yards over the fast main track in 1:40.77 and returned $5.60, $3.40 and $2.40 as the favorite in the field of eight fillies and mares. Genre completed the $23.20 exacta and paid $4 and $2.80. It was a nose back to Eskenformoney, who returned $3.60 to show.
“She was a little eager to go early on, but settled nicely going up the backstretch,” said winning jockey Paco Lopez. “I was confident on her the whole way. I asked her to go just before we turned for home and she responded and finished up real strong.”
A 4-year-old by Bernardini from the Deputy Minister mare Pilfer, Angela Renee sports a record of 4-2-2 from 14 career starts, good for earnings of $578,250. A Grade 1 winner in her own right, she is also a full sister to multiple Grade 1 winner To Honor and Serve.
