Fabulous Strike scores in return

The millionaire sprinter Fabulous Strike made a successful return from 18 months on the sidelines Saturday night, winning a six-furlong allowance worth $42,560 at his home track, Penn National Race Course.


Racing over a sloppy track, the 8-year-old Fabulous Strike ($3.60) was kept about two paths off the rail by jockey Dana Whitney, setting fractions of 22.08 and 44.58 seconds while leading by a length over Peppi Knows, a 4-year-old who last year won the Whirlaway at Aqueduct and was the runner-up in the Grade 2 Remsen in 2009.


Whitney began urging his mount with multiple right-handed taps of the whip inside the eighth pole and Fabulous Strike was hard-ridden to the wire to prevail by two lengths while completing the six furlongs in 1:09.53. Peppi Knows, the 2-1 second choice in a field of five older sprinters, held second by a neck over Wink At the Girls.
