After missing three weeks due to a procedure he dominated his Dancer division in a career best of 1:51.2 to go three-for-three this season, Goodtimes winner is Takter’s prime player

Undefeated five-for-five this season, sporting a Vernon Downs track record of 1:50.3 in the EBC, fifth filly since 2000 to try the boys & would be the first to beat them since Continentalvictory in 1996

Made his first break (sloppy track) in the Tompkins Memorial @ Big M on July 21, PASS winner in 1:51.4, second to Six Pack in his Beal elimination, a strong fourth [1:52.2] in that Final, chance to regroup


Fourth Dimension
