Wild Snitch powered past the field turning for home to capture the $100,000 Sorority Stakes for 2-year-old filles at Monmouth Park on Sunday before a crowd of 13,332.

Trained by Ben Perkins, Jr., Wild Snitch covered the six furlongs over a fast main track in 1:11 and returned $3.60, $2.20 and $2.20.  Grand Natalie Rose was 6 3/4 lengths behind the winner, paying $3.20 and $3.40 and completing an $18.40 exacta.  Runaway Chanel closed to be third, another 1 3/4 lengths behind, and paid $4.20.

"I wish I could tell you how good this filly is,'" said winning jockey Eibar Coa, "but I don't know, I haven't asked her for run in either of the races she's been in.  The only way to describe her is like a car, you step on the gas and she just takes off.  I know she had plenty left, and like I said, there's no telling how good this filly is."

Wild Snitch's win in the Sorority marked the third straight victory in the race for trainer Perkins, and the second straight for owner New Farm. 

The 2-year-old filly by Forest Wildcat is undefeated in her two lifetime starts and has bankrolled $79,200 for her owner.

Trainer Ben Perkins said, "I can't tell you where she'll go next.  I'll have to talk it over with the owner."

In an unfortunate incident in the race, the pacesetter and second betting choice, Advancing Storm, was pulled up just inside the eighth pole.

"She was vanned off the track," reported the state veterinarian's office.  "She's back in her stall and a private practitioner is treating her."
