Fabulous Strike tunes up at Penn National

Before heading out on the road to tackle much tougher company, the millionaire sprinter Fabulous Strike will get one more tune-up on his home track.


The 8-year-old Fabulous Strike will make the second start of his comeback following 15 months on the sidelines in the six-furlong Changing Times, the last of three $75,000 stakes on Friday night’s card at Penn National Race Course.


An all-stakes pick three begins in race 5 with the Danzig, a six-furlong sprint for Pennsylvania-bred 3-year-olds. In the second leg of the sequence, Quantum Miss, a three-time stakes winner, including the Grade 3 Comely in New York this spring, will be a heavy favorite in the six-furlong Wonders Delight for Pennsylvania-bred 3-year-old fillies.


The star attraction, however, remains Fabulous Strike, whose career was resurrected thanks to stem cell therapy he underwent last summer. Making his first start since a second-place finish in the Grade 1 Vosburgh in October 2009, Fabulous Strike won an allowance at Penn National on April 9, recording a 96 Beyer Speed Figure.
