Coraggioso sets 1:53.4 Vernon track mark
« Return to News
Friday's fantastic performance earned the career-winner of more than $511,400 his 12th lifetime victory for owners Joseph Spadaro and Tom J. Durkin, the famed announcer for the New York Racing Association.
Friday's fastest mile was a 1:52.3 victory by the pacer Windows Online, who became a two-time winner at the seven-night meet with a bold-going effort in the evening's seventh session. It was one of three tallies during the 12-race program for defending driving champ and current leader Rick Plano. He also finished first with Ulay Boko (1:55.2) in the sixth session and To Tell The Truth (1:53) in race 10. His wife, Maryann, owns the latter two Standardbreds.
Driver John MacDonald was also a multiple winner during Friday's format, posting a pair of first-place finishes. (Vernon)
