NEW WORLD RECORD!
The final time for the distance was 2:22.72, it's a track record . This 2;21 and change time that is being thrown out there is incorrect

  • travel_vic · certain tracks, by their very nature and composition, not to mention layout, all add to whether they are faster or slower. · 523 days ago
  • cruisecontrol · I had mentioned I thought Hawkster ran in 2:21 4/5 but only said so in acknowledging Sullivan was correct. Didn't really put it out as fact. · 523 days ago
If he runs a 1 1/2 easily then Iwonder what he could do with the likes of Point of Entry?

  • kay.robinett · Mary Z, that would be a race to really look forward to!!! · 524 days ago
  • Sullivan · Little Mike / Bright Thought / Slim Shadey / Point of Entry should be a good race, I just don't like when Americans win on their own surface. Everything we can do to coddle European horses into our country helps, especially after this Lasix thing. I don't think the paid travel fee will do much. · 523 days ago
