Having previously run 4th in the Florida Oaks and won a Listed Stake, Rusty Slipper made it into Graded Stakes territory yesterday by winning the Violet Stakes (Grade III) at Monmouth Park. Now a 4 year old she was given plenty of time to mature and only ran once as a 2 year old at the end of 2012. This was her first start in almost a year after having time off. Congratulations to owner Ralphy Meahjohn.
