TRACK RECORD FOR SIMPLE KINDA MAN
Locally debuting Simple Kinda Man (Jim Marohn Jr., $6.10) found his way into the annals Monday night (Sept. 17th), wiring his way to happiness in 1:51.2.
That effort, in the $16,000, seventh race pace, is the new Westchester watermark for 3 year old geldings, wiping away Gokudo Hanover's 1:51.3 in 2015.
From post position No. 5, Simple Kinda Man cruised through intervals of 26.3, 55.1 and 1:23, then finished it off by four lengths for just his second win in 13 seasonal starts.
"I've had him about 10 days." trainer Bruce Saunders said. "The owners (M&L of Delaware) are hands-on and they said to race him with an open bridle because he can be a runaway. I saw the line where he was down to the three-quarters in 1:21 and 2/5 in Canada, so I knew he was fast.
"The plugs were in and I spoke to Jimmy (Marohn Jr.) after and he never felt as if the horse was getting away from him, so I'm very happy with the effort."
