Barbara Boese's Fashion Astral ($2.80, Carlo Poliseno) broke the track record for 3-year-old trotters Thursday at Harrington Raceway with a 1:56.1 victory in a conditioned event.
Trained and driven by Poliseno, the Broadway Hall colt left the gate from post four and immediately seized the front, where he set fractions of :28.2, :57.2 and 1:27 before drawing away by open lengths over second-place finisher Miss Accomack. Fashion Astral scored an impressive 1:58 win on Sept. 6 in his Harrington debut. ‘Astral', who was purchased in July, notched his third win of the year and boosted his lifetime bankroll to nearly $125,000.
The previous track record for 3-year-old trotters was held by Tough Challenger (1:57.1).
Eddie Davis Jr. had three winners on the program. (Harrington)
