ELMONT, N.Y.--Jonathan Sheppard saddled JR Stables' New  York homebred Everyonelovesjames to win a $70,000 Allowance race at Belmont Park on June 29.

jonathonsheppardWillowdaleJonathon SheppardThe 4-year-old chestnut gelding, by Freud out of a Lemon Drop Kid mare, had quite an adventurous trip, but prevailed to win by 2 lengths.

Everyoneloves james bobbled at the break of the 1 1/16mile  turf race, brushing with  Gambler's Fallacy, who eventually finished second.

Despite jockey Eric  Cancel's restraint,  Everyonelovesjames pulled his way to the front and led the way just off the inside rail under a  firm hold, got out three or four paths wide at the half  mile pole  and into the turn, with Cancel nearly standing in the saddle applying a hard hold  to stay three wide as  Cloontia, who eventually finished third, slipped though on the inside to gain the lead.

Cancel appeared to have  an issue with the reins nearing the quarter pole, gathering them up and bunching them as Everyonelovesjames  floated  five wide, taking back the lead and driving to the finish with good courage for the win.

Cancel then needed the assistance of an outrider to pull up after the finish.

Pured It had run third in the Willowdale Stakes the week before.

"This horse loves jumping and galloping," said Keating. "The plan was to go to the front, because he doesn't have the speed to sprint at the end, so the plan was to go to the front and grind it out. When Le Chevalier came to me and headed me, I thought he'd sprint away, but my horse fought back. He wanted to win."
