OCEANPORT, N.J. (AP) — A.P. Indian was the front-running winner of the $85,000 Decathlon Stakes, the opening day feature Saturday as Monmouth Park kicked off its 70th season.

The 58-day meet that runs through Sept. 27 began with a crowd of 11,138 on a foggy, cold day on the Jersey Shore.

Daniel Centeno gunned the 5-year-old gelding immediately to the lead. A.P. Indian, the 2-1 favorite, beat Favorite Tale, the 6-5 choice, by 2 3/4 lengths to notch his fourth win in eight starts.

A.P. Indian has two wins and a second this year since switching to Arnaud Delacour's barn.

A.P. Indian paid $6.40, $3.40 and $2.80.

Favorite Tale returned $3 and $2.80 while Saucy Don paid $8 to win.

The time was 1:09.50 for six furlongs.
