A seven-horse field went to the post for the day’s feature race in Monkton. Doc Cebu, trained by Jack Fisher and ridden by Hadden Frost was touted as the favorite going in however, bad luck on the back side of the course resulted in a stumble on upon landing and jockey Frost parted company with his mount at the 15th fence, opening the door for 2018’s third-place finisher, Upland Partners’ Mystic Strike. Blair Wyatt’s Witor (Ger) took the lead dueling with 2017 Manor Race winner Bruton Street-USA’s Lemony Bay. Mystic Strike, ridden by Mark Beecher, despite taking down a rail, was able to overtake Witor for the win by a length and a quarter despite a claim of foul by Doc Cebu’s jockey, Frost. Witor, piloted by last week’s three-race winner, Eric Poretz, was second and Lemony Bay under Brett Owings finished third. The winning time was 6:18:2/5.
