Klaravich Stables’ Value Proposition cruised home to a nearly three-length victory in the $150,000 Red Bank Stakes on Saturday afternoon at Monmouth Park in Oceanport, N.J.
The Chad Brown-trainee was dispatched the 3-10 favorite and the 5-year-old ridgling stepped the flat mile over “good” turf in 1:38.18 and paid $2.60 and $2.10. Pacesetter Proven Strategies held for second and paid $2.60 to place, with Reconvene checking in third.
Value Proposition is one of 11 blacktype runners in 2021 to graduate from the famed Hidden Brook Florida Training Center.
“I just took a hold of him early on,” said winning jockey Paco Lopez, after riding his sixth winner of the day. “He was running so smoothly the whole way. When we got to the three-eighths pole, I moved him into position to strike and in the lane, he just cruised home. He was much the best and I rode him that way.”
A son of Dansili (GB) from the Diktat (GB) mare Dash To The Front (GB), Value Proposition improved his lifetime mark to 5-1-3 from 11 starts, good for earnings of $359,773.
