OCEANPORT, N.J. (AP) — Dancing Solo took the lead near the top of the stretch and drew off to win the $100,000 Boiling Springs Stakes at Monmouth Park on Saturday, beating Zultanite by 1 1/2 lengths.

Ridden by Joe Bravo, who won four races on the day, the 3-year-old filly ran the 1 1/16 miles over a firm turf course in 1:41.99 and paid $5.60, $3.20 and $2.60. The win in the Grade 3 race was the third victory in 10 career starts for Dancing Solo, who is trained by Todd Pletcher and has now earned $163,105.

Zultanite returned $4 and $2.60, while betting favorite Somali Lemonade was another half-length back in third and paid $2.60.
