Finally, it is amazing to me the number of track records that have been set at Hoosier Park during the current meet. It shows just what having the harness meet in Anderson for the heat of the summer will do when paired with a great racing surface.
Speed Trap, with Sam Widger at the controls, broke the track record for 2-year-old pacing geldings when he posted a 1:50.4 in the featured event, the second round of the $30,000 Indiana Gold Sire Stakes for 2-year-old pacing colts and geldings on Tuesday.
It was his fifth win of the season. Speed Trap bested his lifetime mark by nearly 4 seconds and became the fastest pacing colt in Indiana Sire Stakes history.
