Lookout Hanover glided home in a world record time of 1:49.2 Thursday at Harrah’s Chester Casino and Racetrack, defeating a field of conditioned horses in the process.
The 4-year-old The Panderosa stallion left from post five for trainer Kevin McDermott with catch driver Corey Callahan. The time equals the world record for 4-year-old stallions shared by Art Official (2009, CHST - Ron Pierce) and Jenna’s Beach Boy (1996, RCR - Billy Fahy).
A Daily Double bet on Tim Curtin returned sweet dividends. The 51-year-old Illinois native steered the seasoned-trotter, Armbro Aristocrat (18.60), to the wire in a seasonal best 1:55. His second trip to the winner’s circle came aboard Art Gram (32.40), establishing a lifetime mark of 1:52.3 for the 5-year-old Dictionary pacer. The daily double combination paid $625.40.
