Res Judicata Gallops In City Of Laurel Stakes

LAUREL, MD. 11-9-13---Someday Farm’s Res Judicata broke on top, settled comfortably into second and when asked by his rider, spurted to the lead and galloped to victory in the $100,000 City of Laurel Stakes for 3 year olds.

John Servis trains the son of Smarty Jones at Parx Racing and Kendrick Carmouche is his regular pilot. This was the second stakes victory for Res Judicata, who won the Elser Memorial last year at his home base. Today he covered the seven furlong distance in 1:23.09 and won off by 4-1/4 lengths, while Souper Knight edged City of Weston to finish second.

Res Judicata paid $16.

“Once he left, we went with the seven (Edge of Reality) and kind of let him set the fractions,” said Carmouche. “The trainer said just make one run with him. I stayed clear on the outside and then when we got to the quarter pole, it was a race from there on. They were either going to beat me or not beat me. It seems like every other race, he runs a good one. He set up good today. Last time he didn’t break quite as sharp, but Charles Town, it’s a bull ring. Today was a different story. It was perfect.”
