Dakota Gold Dazzles In Nownownow At Monmouth

by Tom Luicci/Monmouth Park


Trainer Danny Gargan probably won't need to do any more convincing with owner Dean Reeves about sending Dakota Gold to the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf Nov. 5 at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club in Del Mar, Calif.


The horse stated his case emphatically on Sunday at Monmouth Park in Oceanport, N.J.


Dakota Gold, a New York-bred son of Freud, turned in an eye-catching performance on closing day at Monmouth Park, capturing the $500,000 Nownownow Stakes for 2-year-olds by 2½ lengths.
