WiggleIt JiggleIt’s back. In a big way.
Not that he really went anywhere, but if there were any seeds of doubt planted from his loss in the Cane Pace last weekend – which was induced by a destructive early speed duel – those doubts were erased by another Track Record performance in the $405,000 Milstein Memorial at Northfield Park last night.
The sophomore pacing star motored around the Cleveland oval to an easy 1:49 3/5 win, demolishing the previous track record shared by Griffindor and Hare Craft by more than two full seconds. The sophomore Mr. Wiggles gelding paced the fastest mile ever by a three-year-old over the 1/2 mile track and in doing so easily repelled a first-over challenge by his North America Cup nemesis Wakizashi Hanover.
