Wrong part of entry wins Cane Pace
Nichols, NY (Sports Network) - Dynamic Youth, coupled with leading 3-year-old pacer A Rocknroll Dance, got the best of his stablemate to capture Monday's $322,716 Cane Pace at Tioga Downs. The mile race is the first jewel in the Pacing Triple Crown.
Driven by George Brennan, Dynamic Youth came from off the pace to post a head victory over Pet Rock with Bettor's Edge finishing third in the nine horse field.
A Rocknroll Dance, driven by Yannick Gingras, had taken over the lead in the race when the field went past the wire for the first time on the five-eighths track.
The Meadowlands Pace champ controlled the pace up the backstretch and around the final turn. The stronger part of the favored 2-5 entry, A Rocknroll Dance had the lead entering the final stretch as his entrymate rallied down the middle of the track.
Pet Rock took the lead nearing the wire, but it was Dynamic Youth who forged to the front to get the win. Dynamic Youth bettered his own track record by pacing the mile in 1:48 4/5.
A Rocknroll Dance faded to fourth followed by Heston Blue Chip, Steelhead Hanover, State Treasurer, Time To Roll and Mybrothergeorge.
The victory puts Dynamic Youth in position to claim the Pacing Triple Crown. The Triple Crown will continue with the Little Brown Jug on Thursday, Sept. 20 and the Messenger Stakes on Saturday, Nov. 10. No Pan Intended in 2003 was the last 3-year-old to win the Triple Crown.
Dynamic Youth is owned by J And T Silva Stables, Kenneth Tucci and C And G Racing Stable with Aaron Lambert the trainer. The colt has won five of 13 starts this year for $400,000.
Dynamic Youth returned $2.90, $2.10 and $2.10. Pet Rock paid $4.30 and $3.10, and Bettor's Edge paid $7.40 to show.
