Third Start Is the Charm for Debbie's Passion
Published: Monday, September 30, 2019

Despite not having raced since she finished a good fourth in her second career start in the OBS Sophomore Stakes at Tampa Bay Downs on March 31, Debbie's Passion was loaded for bear in her Monmouth Park return yesterday.

With Hector Diaz aboard in the six-furlong maiden special, the 3-year- daughter of First Dude was bumped leaving the gate, but she quickly recovered and rushed up to a tracking position in fourth place down the backstretch. When Diaz asked her to run on the turn, Debbie's Passion responded in a big way. She split horses at the top of the stretch, took on pacesetter Gallant Plunger down the lane, and out-gamed the 7/10 favorite to the wire to win by more than a length.

In becoming First Dude's 63rd winner of 2019, Debbie's Passion earned a check of $27,000 for owner/breeder Raymond Mamone and raised her total for three races to $32,200. She had picked up $5,000 in the Tampa race as a maiden when she missed third place by a neck.
