Forhteluvofbournon returned $13.00, 6.00 and 3.20 while Beren paid $4.80 and 3.20. Favorite I Am Redeemed paid $2.20 and had to settle for third after a troubled trip.

In the $100,000 Unique Bella Stakes, the favorite Cinnabunny held on by a neck to earn her second black-type victory, covering seven furlongs in 1:25.03. Ridden to victory by Jorge Ruiz and trained by Cathal Lynch, the Pennsylvania-bred daughter of Golden Lad returned $6.60, 4.20 and 2.80. Fast-closing longshot Ninetypercentbrynn paid $27.40 and 14.00 while Wildcat Cartridge closed for third and paid $17.60. Graded stakes-placed Cinnabunny is owned by Runnymoore Racing, LLC.

Also on Monday, Parx Racing held the first two-year-old race of the season. Trainer John C. Servis saddled both the winner, Condescending, and the runner-up, Chance Occurrence. Under Frankie Pennington, Condescending broke alertly and was in command throughout the two-furlong contest. A Pennsylvania-bred daughter of Exaggerator owned and bred in partnership by Main Line Racing, she returned $6.80, 3.80 and 3.20. Chance Occurrence paid $7.40 and $5.00 while Amira Wins returned $4.00.
