JL Cruzes to a World Record

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ – JL Cruze just keeps getting better and better and so does his incredible story.

The same horse that was a non-entity last year at 3, won for the 15th time this year from 17 starts and did so in the fastest ever trotting mile in the storied history of the Meadowlands. Holding off a fierce late rally from the mare Shake It Cerry, JL Cruze won last night’s $250,000 Graduate Final at the Meadowlands by a nose in 1:49.4. It was the fastest mile in history by a trotter on a one-mile track.
