Post-Race Analysis

Pennsylvania-bred Bronx Beauty, who was undefeated in three previous starts at Penn National, slipped away at 11-1 in competitive field and capitalized on a perfect trip to win by 1 1/2 lengths over favored Ms Locust Point. The 4-year-old Liaison filly covered the six furlongs in 1:08.57, very close to the track record.

Manuel Franco, who was in from New York for multiple mounts, rode Bronx Beauty for trainer Anthony Margotta Jr., who has her stabled at Monmouth Park. Her owners, Richard and Marion Woll (2W Stables), live not far from the New Jersey racetrack in Tinton Falls.

“Last time she tripped coming out of the gate,” Richard Woll said. “She doesn’t need to the lead but she likes to be close, and Manny put her there. He’s a Class A rider. This is a dream come true. Tony (Margotta) has changed his life around, and he believes in what he says. He’s a good guy.”

Woll said he expects Bronx Beauty, now six-for-11 in her career, will point to the Dashing Beauty Stakes at Delaware Park July 13. It’s the third leg of her MATCH Series division. He also said the plan is for her to race in the series at Monmouth, which will hold the final leg.

“This is more about the excitement than the money,” Woll said.
