Lincoln track report


LINCOLN, Neb. - Genuine Lass broke the 20-year-old track record for six furlongs in a nonwinners-of-four allowance race June 20. Trained by Terrell Hemmer, Genuine Lass sprinted clear through fractions of 23.80 seconds, 36.40, and 57.80, and set the new mark of 1:10.20 while winning by three lengths.

A 4-year-old daughter of Tarsal, out of the stakes winning Fort Prevel mare Genuine Jazz, Genuine Lass bettered the mark established by One Red Injun in 1982 and equaled by Nomistakethistime in 1998. Genuine Lass now sports a career record of 4-2-1 from 9 starts.

On the same night, the early pick four wager established a dubious record of its own. The win payoff on the first four races ranged from $17.20 to $18.40. With just $478 in the pool, the pick four returned $6.80 for correctly tabbing one of the four winners.

Armando Martinez rode four winners on Saturday's nine-race card to remain a solid second in the rider standing. It was Martinez's fourth four-bagger of the season. He trails Jerry Carkeek by a 41-37 margin with three weeks remaining in the meet.

Post time for Saturday's card will be shifted back to 7 p.m. in order to accommodate the Americruise Car Show.
