Fred's Dream a New York-bred star at Vernon Downs


Vernon, NY --- Fred’s Dream kept his winning streak alive and lowered his speed mark to 1:57.3 in second flight of Saturday’s $61,700 New York Sires Stakes-sponsored test at Vernon Downs.



The Bill Bailey-steered favorite sat in the pocket for most of the mile, then closed in the final furlong for a two length tally, his second late-closing triumph during the month. Ann Yurenka conditions the son of Giant Hit--Minute Rice for Mary K. Apker.



Saturday’s other late-closing winners were Mystical Mikel (Conway Hall--Fancy Crown), in 1:57.4, with Lewayne Miller driving for trainer and part owner Kimberly Burris and Joseph Budney; House On Fire (Conway Hall--Housethatruthbuilt), in 1:58.4 with trainer Ray Schnittker steering for his ownership partner, the House On Fire Stable; Ridethewind-chrys (Cash Hall--Malhana Copperhead), in 1:57.3, with Frank Milby teaming for owner and trainer Jeffrey Rose and Glorious Winner (Credit Winner--Fox Valley Flan) with Miller again in the sulky, this time for trainer Erv Miller and the Tanah Merah Farms.



Competing in Saturday’s $10,000 ninth race, the week’s Open I contest, Pacinello ($19.20) took advantage of fast early fractions (a half in :55.2), rallied to the lead from third on the backstretch and rolled to a solid 1:50.2 score that set a new Vernon standard for older pacing horses. The previous 1:51.1 mark was set by Going To The Beach, in 2002, and equaled by Diamond Stick Pin in this same event two weeks ago.



It was one of three tallies on Saturday’s 10-race card for driver Luke Plano, who did the teaming for his dad, trainer Rick Plano, and the D&E Racing Stable. The time equaled the 5-year-old horse’s lifetime mark, set last season at Meadowlands Racetrack.
