Breaking Bread benefitted from a disqualification to give six-time leading trainer Jorge Navarro his first stakes victory of the young Monmouth Park meet when the 6-year-old mare was elevated from second to first in the $75,000 Serena’s Song Stakes on Saturday.
Goodonehoney, ridden by Nik Juarez, crossed the finish line first in the one mile and 70 yard contest – four lengths ahead of Goodonehoney. It was another half-length back to odds-on favorite Forever Liesl.
The stewards disqualified Goodonehoney from first to third behind Forever Liesl for interference in the backside with Forever Liesl.
“As soon as we came off the first turn I saw something was going on (with Goodonehoney and Forever Liesl),” said Angel Suarez, the rider on Breaking Bread. “So I eventually wound up riding for second because I thought there was a chance for a disqualification. I just kept riding as hard as I could to get second place and hopefully get lucky.
