Freaky Feet Pete breezed to his second win of the season at Hoosier Park on Saturday night

Freaky Feet Pete, the 2015 Breeders Crown Champion for 3-year-old pacing colts, turned in another dominant performance to score his second consecutive Hoosier Park victory in the $21,000 Invitational Pace. With regular driver Trace Tetrick at the lines, Freaky Feet Pete stopped the timer in 1:50 2/5 over a sloppy rated track.

Using the same front-stepping tactics as the previous week, Freaky Feet Pete dictated first half fractions of 27 1/5 and 55 2/5 while Fearless Diablo and LeWayne Miller benefited from a pocket trip. With the heavy betting favorite calling the shots on the front, the rest of the field remained in single file line down the backside.

Bluehourpower and Ricky Macomber Jr. were the first to commit to the outer flow, but Freaky Feet Pete began to inch away from the field with every stride. With a three-quarter clocking in 1:23, Freaky Feet Pete began to put his talent on display as the rest of the field struggled to stay within striking distance.

Freaky Feet Pete cruised to the wire under a hand drive from Tetrick, finishing 6 1/2 lengths in front of Fearless Diablo. SF Donttellonme and Joey Casagranda used a late-closing kick to round out the trifecta.  

With the win, Freaky Feet Pete notched the second win of his 4-year-old campaign and his 26th career victory from 29 lifetime outings. The homebred son of Rockin Image-Skyway Lori has now earned $1,136,724 lifetime for his owners Mary Jo Rheinheimer and Marty Rheinheimer.
