ARCHANGEL SETS WORLD RECORD 1:50 IN CASHMAN ELIM

MANALAPAN, NJ – July 27, 2014 – Sebastian K won his sixth in seven starts but the spotlight was on Archangel who set a mile track world record with a 1:50 flat effort in the first of two elimination races for the John Cashman Jr. Memorial Trot on Saturday, July 26, 2014 at the Meadowlands.

The top five from each $50,000 elim advance to the $300,650 Cashman Final on August 2.

Archangel [$12.40], a five-year-old son of Credit Winner, was, according to driver Yannick Gingras, “sitting on a big mile.” That was what the Ron Burke trainee delivered in the seventh race, clicking off quarters of 26.1, 54.4 and 1:22.3 before crossing the wire a length and three-quarters ahead of Maple Leaf Trot winner Intimidate in the 1:50 mile.

Market Share was two and a quarter back in third with Your So Vain and Sevruga also making the cut.

Archangel, racing for Legendary Standardbred Farm of Mt. Morris, NY and Clare Semer of South Palm Beach, FL, picked up his second win of the year, finishing on the board in half his 10 starts. Lifetime, he has 16 wins, 10 seconds and two thirds from 41 starts for earnings of $1,026,351.

The black stallion was unraced in 2013 when he was bred to 43 mares and has nine registered foals this year.

The fastest all-time trotter, Sebastian K, won the second Cashman elimination, the 11th race, with a 1:51 mile, well off his best of 1:49 on June 28 at Pocono.


Sebastian K


The eight-year-old, trained and driven by Ake Svanstedt, was a three and a quarter length winner over Mister Herbie. Uncle Peter was third while Appomattox and Arch Madness also made the final.

Sebastian K, sent off at odds of 1-9, posted his sixth win in seven starts, improving his US bankroll to $352,278 toward a career total of $2.6 million, racing for the Knutsson Trotting Inc of Vero Beach, FL.

In the $40,000 Lady Liberty eliminations for free for all pacing mares, Drop The Ball [$11.60] was a half length winner over Jerseylicious who edged out Charisma Hanover in the 1:49.2 mile, the fourth race.


Drop The Ball


Nine of the 10 starters advance to the $177,750 final, joining Rocklamation, who had a bye. In addition to the top three, the others will be Shelliscape, Somwherovrarainbow, Aunt Caroline, Shebestingin, Mattie Terror Girl and Krispy Apple. Finishing last was Anndrovette, who will miss the final unless there is a scratch.

Drop The Ball, driven by Corey Callahan and trained by Ross Croghan, is a six-year-old by Western Terror who has banked nearly $1.4 lifetime for Floridians Let It Ride Stables, Mentally Stables and Dana Parham.

In a $35,000 prep for the $500,000 Hambletonian Oaks for three-year-old trotting fillies, the fifth race, Shake It Cerry [$6.80] was a half-length winner of 4-5 favorite Designed To Be with a length and a quarter to Lifetime Pursuit in third in the 1:54.4 mile.


Shake It Cerry


Shake It Cerry, driven by Ron Pierce and trained by Jimmy Takter, was last year’s divisional champion and Breeders Crown winner. She has won six of seven starts this year and 14 of 18 lifetime for earnings in excess of $1 million for owner-breeder Solveig’s Racing Partners of East Windsor, NJ.

Free for all pacers tuned up for next week’s US Pacing Championship with a $40,000 event, the sixth race, and Sweet Lou [$2.80] tossed in a last quarter in 26 seconds to win by a length and three-quarters over Captaintreacherous. Thinking Out Loud was third.


Sweet Lou


Sweet Lou, winner of seven of 10 this year, including the William Haughton Memorial, extended his winning streak to seven with the 1:47.3 mile. Ron Pierce was at the lines of the Ron Burke trainee.

The five-year-old has earned more than $2.7 million, competing for Burke Racing, Weaver Bruscemi, Larry Karr and Phil Collura.
