OCEANPORT, N.J. (AP) Little Hitman grabbed the lead at the top of the stretch and held off the late charge by Credo to capture the $50,000 allowance feature at Monmouth Park on Friday by nearly a length.
Ridden by Pedro Cotto Jr., Little Hitman covered the six furlongs in 1:11.25 in winning his second straight race. The 4-year-old ridgling paid $4.20, $2.80 and $2.60 as the favorite in the field of eight New Jersey-bred colts and geldings.
Credo, who had traffic problems, paid $3.60 and $3.20. It was another two lengths back to pacesetter Beyond City Limits, who paid $6.40 to show.
