Henny Hughes 2YO Breaks Saratoga Track Record
In the US overnight, dual US Gr1-winning shuttler Henny Hughes (Hennessy-Meadow Flyer, by Meadowlake) received a major boost when front-running 2YO colt J C'S Pride (Henny Hughes-Hi Lili, by Silver Deputy) smashed the track record for 5 furlongs at Saratoga in New York, clocking 56.54sec (old mark 56.71) on the main track in his 2nd start for trainer Robert Barbara. J C’s Pride was originally a US$190,000 weanling at the 2009 Keeneland November Sale, then a US$90,000 yearling at the 2010 Keeneland September Sale & finally a US$200,000 purchase at this year’s Fasig-Tipton Midlantic 2YO Breeze-Up Sale.
