Eclipse Me N sets 1:48.2 world record
« Return to News
The freshman trotting colt Paulie Walnuts is perfect after two career starts after a wire-to-wire 1:56.2 victory, not only a lifetime best but also a North American season’s record. The likely reason trainer Gareth Dowse could lure driver Jim Morrill Jr. to Pocono for his first appearance since May 19, Paulie Walnuts went to the front early and had no problems throughout the mile, although Hit Show did very well from the pocket to stay within 1¼ lengths of the winner at the finish. The son of Andover Hall out of D Liteful Hanover (a half-sister to Donato Hanover) looks like a potential stakes colt for owner Howard Taylor.
Anthony Napolitano drove five winners on the Tuesday Pocono card, three of them for trainer Jose Godinez. (PHHA/Pocono)
