Three-year-old super filly Silverbulletday took the lead at the top of the stretch and romped to a five-length victory against three rivals in the $250,000 Monmouth Breeders' Cup Oaks today.
The race was her first since finishing seventh in the Belmont Stakes against males, and this one was really no contest.
Jockey Jerry Bailey let Silverbulletday get comfortable for the first half-mile, challenged pacesetter Bag Lady Jane on the final turn and then drew off in the stretch to the cheers of the crowd of 12,402 at Monmouth Park.
Silverbulletday covered the 1 1/16-mile for 3-year-olds in a leisurely 1 minute 43 seconds in winning for the sixth time in seven starts this year and for the 12th time in 14 career outings. The daughter of Silver Deputy paid $2.10 and earned $150,000 for owner Michael Pegram.
There was no place or show wagering. Of the $157,535 in the win pool at the track, $123,995 was bet on Silverbulletday.
The filly has earned $1.25 million this year, pushing her career total to $2.36 million. It was her ninth graded stakes win, and it also gave trainer Bob Baffert his first win in New Jersey.
Boom Town Girl closed in the stretch under Tommy Turner to edge Bag Lady Jane by a length for second. Chatter Patter was a distant fourth, another 12 1/4 lengths farther back. West's Secret was an early scratch.
