Monticello, N.Y. – The depth of talent in the Chris Petrelli barn is indeed deep. This afternoon, it was After The Lovin showcasing her talents from his stable as she defeated seven other foes in the Filly – Mares Open, vying for a purse of $7,700.
Mike Merton and Sandy Win were the first to get the lead and cut fractions of 28.1 and 58.2. At the halfway mark, Cory Stratton and After The Lovin were the first to pull, followed by 40-1 American Tour N (Frank Calcagni). Past the half, the field was four in and four out. After The Lovin grinded her way to the lead at the ¾ stanza in 1:26.3 and continued to keep American Tour N at bay to win by a length in 1:56.3 – $9.00. After The Lovin is a five-year-old mare by Carnivore and is owned by David Del Pozzo of Methuen, MA. It was her eighth win of the season.
