A speed duel between favored Wiggle It Jiggleit and In The Arsenal opened the door to the field in the $319,400 Can Pace for sophomore pacing colts. David Miller and Dealt A Winner seized the opportunity, and at 26-1, upset the field with a stakes and world record 1:47.3 performance Saturday at the Meadowlands. Artspeak paced second and Dude’s The Man outfinished Wiggle It Jiggleit for third.
When the gate folded, In The Arsenal and Brian Sears, full of pace on the outside, fired for the lead. Montrell Teague, driving Meadowlands Pace champion Wiggle It Jiggleit, also moved to the front from post two. The two pacers engaged in wicked fractions, reaching the half in a blistering :52.1. That set up for a stretch drive where the first jewel of pacing’s Triple Crown was up for grabs. Dealt A Winner, poised to strike on the outside, kicked home the fastest to capture his first win of the season.
Trained by Mark Silva for Jeffrey Snyder, the son of Cam’s Card Shark picked up his sixth career win. Bred by Hanover Shoe Farms, the sophomore dropped his mark by more than four seconds in victory. The win pushed Dealt A Winner’s career earnings to more than $460,000. The previous stakes record for the Cane Pace was 1:48.4, set by Dynamic Youth.
