Monster Racing Stables’ The Critical Way tracked the leaders in the early going of Saturday’s $98,500 Wolf Hill Stakes at Monmouth Park, rallied to take command in the final furlong and was best by three quarters of a length at the wire. That’s two straight stakes wins for the 7-year-old son of Tizway, who turned in an Under Tack eighth in :10 flat and was purchased for $75,000 out of the Wavertree Stables consignment at the 2016 OBS June Sale. Now 26-9-6-2 for trainer Jose Delgado, he has earned $479,168 to date. watch his under tack video:
