Wind Surfer sets Meadows track record
« Return to News
Wind Surfer assured a speedy mile when he parked Master Begonia, winner of five straight, in a swift first quarter of :27.2. But when Michaelrowyourboat challenged Master Begonia around the far turn, it appeared that Wind Surfer might be trapped in the pocket.
Eric Ledford found a seam between the dueling leaders and defeated Michaelrowyourboat by a half-length while Master Begonia saved show. The mile was the fastest ever by a 4-year-old gelding trotter at The Meadows, erasing the old mark of 1:54 established earlier this year by Four Starz Speed.
Kent Sherman trains the son of Muscles Yankee-Windsurfing VC, who pushed his career bankroll past $200,000 for James Koran and Betty Sherman. The victory was one of four on the 16-race card for Ledford. (The Meadows)
