SHANCELOT (c, 3, Shanghai Bobby–True Kiss {SW, $115,418}, by Is It True), a sharp maiden winner back in February at Gulfstream, returned with a frontrunning romp over allowance/optional claiming rivals Sunday at Monmouth. Debuting at over 12-1 Feb. 16 in Hallandale, the $245,000 OBS March buy set a blistering pace and held on late to best subsequent GI Florida Derby runner-up Bodexpress (Bodemeister), earning a 91 Beyer in the process. Back with all the money on at 3-10 here, the dark bay broke on top and quickly cleared, opening up by four lengths past a :22.16 quarter. Bowling along through a :44.56 half, the Jorge Navarro trainee never showed any signs of slowing down in the stretch and cruised under the wire 6 1/4 lengths to the good in a salty final clocking. Clench (The Factor) was second best. The winner is a half to One True Kiss (Warrior’s Reward), MGSP, $231,459, as well as a juvenile Carpe Diem filly named Sweet Kisses who was runner-up first out June 12 at Belmont for Jeremiah Englehart. His dam, a half to GISW turfer Silver Max (Badge of Silver), has a yearling colt by Runhappy and foaled a Carpe Diem colt Apr. 23. Sales History: $50,000 Ylg ’17 FTSAUG; $245,000 2yo ’18 OBSMAR. Lifetime Record: 2-2-0-0, $54,300. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
