Tweedle Dum, the “Cinderfella” trotting story of 2006, won his 17th race of the season on Wednesday night in Pompano Park’s $10,000 Open Handicap Trot to reclaim his status as the “winningest” trotter of the season in North America.

With Walter Ross Jr. handling the lines for owners Diane Norris and Alfred Brotter, the 6-year-old son of Star Challenge clicked off fractions of :28.1, :58.2 and 1:27.2 before romping home—effortlessly—in :28.4 to score the 2-1/4 length victory in 1:56.1. U Toe The Bike was second for Wally Hennessey while Class Action N, handled by Rick Schaut, finished third.

Tweedle Dum, who survived what many thought to be career-ending injuries and subsequent surgery to repair bone breaks last year, won for the 16th time in his past 19 starts—in the other three races he was second. During the 95 charted “points of call” in those races, the trotter now shows “1’s” at 90 of those points.

With 40 lifetime wins over his five-year racing career, Tweedle Dum now has lifetime bounty of $189,405—just about half of that, $93,005, earned in 2006. He has a lifetime mark of 1:53.3 here at Pompano Park. (Pompano Park)
