LONG MONDAY Takes Control on the Turn and Proves Best at Ellis Park

A Maiden Special Weight winner in her third start at 2 last year, LONG MONDAY seized the lead midway around the far turn and was never threatened from there to win this 1 1/16-mile turf event at Ellis Park by two lengths. The 3-year-old filly from the first crop of TAMARKUZ prompted the pace early, took command on the turn, opened up by three lengths at the top of the stretch and remained comfortably in front to the wire. LONG MONDAY was bred by Keene Ridge Racing, LLC, out of the Henny Hughes mare, Vesper Lynd.
