Yonkers, NY --- Quick Deal (George Brennan) became Quicker Deal Friday night, bettering his own Yonkers Raceway track and world record.
Mike Lizzi photo Quick Deal lowered his own world record for aged geldings on a half-mile track (1:53.2) on Saturday night at Yonkers Raceway.
A 1:24.2 three-quarters bumped his lead to seven lengths. It was an even dozen turning for home, and 12-1/4 at the wire, which he found in 1:53.2...one tick faster than his jolly jaunt from mid-October. Bound for Fame (Jordan Stratton) was second, with Calchip's Brute (Brian Sears) third.
The effort also wiped himself out of the world record ledger under the category of "aged gelding, half-mile oval.”
For Quick Deal, a 5-year-old Revenue S gelding trained by Ron Burke for co-owners Our Horse Cents Stable and Rossie Smith, he returned $2.90 for his seventh win in 19 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $17.80, with the triple returning $52.
Quick Deal has won his last three races (two here, one at Harrah's Philly) by a combined 37-1/4 lengths.
