Panther Hanover scores New Jersey Classic
« Return to News
Hurrikane Kingcole flashed past three quarters in a world record 1:18.2, but it was pocket sitter Panther Hanover that surged late to win the $275,000 New Jersey Classic for sophomore pacers Saturday at the Meadowlands, stopping the clock in 1:47.2. Driven by Sylvain Filion for trainer James Dean, the Rocknroll Hanover colt earned his fifth win in six starts this season.
Bred by Hanover Shoe Farm and owned by James Carr, Panther Hanover entered the race with only nine career starts under his belt. A 1:50 winner two starts back at Mohawk, the colt more than doubled his career earnings with the victory, which now stand at just over $205,000.
