The 2013 debut of world-champion trotter Dontyouforgetit has been put on hold one week as the 3-year-old colt was one of just seven entered for the $130,000 (est.) Dexter Cup at Freehold Raceway, which meant that no eliminations were needed as scheduled for this Saturday.
Dontyouforgetit's 1:55.3 effort in a Standardbred division last September at the Delaware, Ohio fair, stands as the fastest mile ever trotted by a 2 year old on a half-mile track. Overall, the homebred son of Cantab Hall out of the $820,000-winning mare Solveig won six of 10 starts as a freshman for earnings of $337,837 for Solveig's Racing Partners. His biggest check of $100,000 came via a score in the $200,000 Pennsylvania Sires Stakes final at The Meadows.
The Jimmy Takter trainee finished third in his first qualifier this year on April 13 at the Meadowlands, which was followed up by a nine-length romp in 2:00.4 in his second attempt on April 18 at Freehold. Takter is listed to drive Dontyouforgetit in the final scheduled for Saturday, May 4.
Also entered in the Dexter Cup are (in alphabetical order): Celebrity Maserati; Celebrity Stimulus; Dewey Luvs Britt; Il lPIzzaiolo; King Muscles; and Stirling Bullet.
