MUSKEGON, Mich. - The track record for seven furlongs of 1:26.42 fell three times over the holiday weekend, as a new series of four seven-furlong $25,000 stakes races were run.

Last year's top 3-year-old filly at this meet, Flyinghannah, won the Great Lakes Handicap on Saturday in a track-record 1:25.72.

The ink was barely dry on Flyinghannah's record when Above the Wind won the Beau Genius Handicap in 1:25.67. Secret Romeo lived up to his star billing in the Wink Novotny Memorial for 3-year-olds, winning despite trouble in 1:24.77.
