« Return to News
For the second time on Wednesday Keeneland Thoroughbred racetrack in
The first polytrack experiment was held in November 2006, and this time around the horses went a few seconds slower due to high winds. A cushion was also cut for the second mile, which went a bit slower than the first race.
Gary Neafus and Lendell Coleman brought horses that had been racing at Bluegrass Downs to start in the pair of races. The first race went in 2:11 while the second mile, contested over the cut surface, went in 2:12.2.
