Delores Wagner’s Caffe D' Oro set a new course record of :54.57 for five furlongs on turf at Monmouth Park on July 15. A 5-year-old gelding by Medaglia d'Oro  , Caffe D’Oro broke on top and never looked back under jockey Navin Mangalee (VIDEO).

He returned $7.40 to win in the $50,000 allowance contest.
   
Trained by Juan Serey, Caffe D’ Oro bested the record of Perfect Officer, who as a 3-year-old stepped the five furlongs, with the portable rail out 36 feet, in :54.77 on July 17, 2009.
