R Adios Jersey repeats in Tampa Bay’s FTBOA City of Ocala

Averill Racing LLC and Jayson R. Werth’s R Adios Jersey, on furlough since May, returned to defend her title in Saturday’s $100,000 FTBOA City of Ocala Florida Sire Stakes at Tampa Bay Downs. The 4-year-old Florida-bred daughter of Adios Charlie, trained by Gerald Bennett, took the lead at the start and was never headed, turning back a stretch challenge from fellow OBS graduate Restofthestory (April ’20) and scoring by a length and three quarters. It’s her third stakes win and leaves her with a 9-6-1-0 career record with $270,250 in earnings. Consigned by breeder Ocala Stud to the 2020 OBS March Sale, she was sold to Averill Racing for $12,000 after breezing an Under Tack quarter in :22 3/5.  watch her under tack video

Charles Galli’s Count de Monet is three for three and a stakes winner after finding room in the stretch of the $150,000 Advent Stakes on Friday at Oaklawn Park and drawing away to a three length victory over fellow OBS graduate Alto Road (April’22). It’s the first stakes win for the 2-year-old colt by Speightster, purchased for $85,000 out of the All In Sales consignment at the 2022 OBS Spring Sale after turning in an Under Tack eighth in :10 1/5. Trained by Thomas H. Swearingen, he has earned $132,188 to date. watch his under tack video   Spring Sale walking video
