Firestone horses run 1-2 in the Cliff Hanger Stakes at Monmouth Park


OCEANPORT, New Jersey — Favored Middleburg edged Special Evoy by a neck as Mr. & Mrs. Bertram R. Firestone saw their runners finish 1-2 in the $100,000 Cliff Hanger Stakes at Monmouth Park on Sunday.

Trained by Christophe Clement, Middleburg found room late in the Grade 3 stakes and covered 1 1/8 miles on the turf course in 1:48 2/5. The Joe Bravo-ridden winner paid $4, $2.80 and $2.20 in winning for the fifth time in 16 starts.

Special Envoy, trained by Arnaud Delacour, paid $8.20 and $4.80. It was another neck back to Lochte, who was $3.80 to show.

"I talked to Christophe this morning and he said win or lose to ride a patient race and sit the pocket, and that's exactly what I did," Bravo said.
