The special Sunday program also features race distances not usually conducted. In this case, shorter distances.
Both the 110-yard and 220-yard distance now have new track records. Bruce Allmty, winner of the Grade 2 Eastex Stakes here on March 9, handled 110 yards in :6.687 to set a new track record in a $26,500 allowance event known as the “Blink of an Eye.”
The effort bested a mark held since 2012 by Jakes Charming Jody (:6.784).
Owned by Adrian Cano of Wichita, Kan. and trained by Fernando Carrete, Bruce Allmty was ridden by Roberto Meraz. In setting a new track record at the quick-distance of 110 yards, The IVORY JAMES 4-year-old also won his fifth consecutive race, in a streak that started at Zia Park in Hobbs, N.M. in December 2017.
In the race prior, Ms Haulin Chic handled a $30,000-level claiming event, traveling 220 yards in :11.547. The time was quicker than the mark of Smokin Past You (:11.657) set in 2010.
Owned by Haulin Assets Racing of Greenville, Texas and trained by Allen Hybsha, the 4-year-old daughter of DOMINYUN was ridden by Ismael Ricardo.
Both new track records were established over a fast track.
