Melady’s Monet extended his winning streak to three and trotted a stakes record of 1:57.3 while capturing the $25,000 New Jersey Sire Stakes Green Acres Final for 3-yearold trotting colts on Oct. 26 at Freehold Raceway.

Trained by Taylor Gower and driven by Hall of Famer Cat Manzi, the gelded son of Revenue eclipsed the Green Acres gelding record of 1:58 set by Spat One in 2002.

Melady’s Monet had won all three of his New Jersey Sire Stakes preliminary legs for a clean sweep of the series. He finished a length and three quarters ahead of Muscolo in second and five lengths ahead of Kingstone in third. Both are sons of Muscles Yankee.

Melady’s Monet now has seven wins, four seconds and three thirds from 20 starts this year. His career bankroll for owner-breeder Luca Balenzano of Pompano Beach, Fla. is $62,223.

This was the final New Jersey Sire Stakes of the 2012 season.
