Md.-based Jacody wins at Monmouth

July 26, 1993|By Ross Peddicord

For the second straight day, a Maryland-based horse shipped to Monmouth Park and won one of New Jersey's biggest races.

Yesterday, Jacody, the filly owned by Arnold Mekiliesky of Randallstown, and trained by Bill Donovan at Pimlico Race Course, drew off in the stretch in the $150,000 Monmouth Oaks and easily defeated Canadian champion filly Deputy Jane West.

On Saturday, Pimlico-based Valley Crossing, trained by Dick Small, won the $500,000 Philip H. Iselin Handicap, also at Monmouth.

Jacody previously had won the Post-Deb Stakes. Last year Donovan pulled off the same stakes double at Monmouth Park, winning the Post-Deb Stakes and Monmouth Oaks with Harriet Finkelstein's Diamond Duo.
