River Downs: Two-surface feat for Devil Time


Devil Time achieved a rare feat in winning the $50,000 Sydney Gendelman Handicap for Ohio-breds for the second consecutive year.

Originally scheduled for the turf, the Gendelman was switched to the dirt after a water-line break drenched parts of the turf course, making it unusable. Thus, Devil Time has won the same stakes on both turf and dirt.

Under a ground-saving ride by Bill Trolio, Devil Time ($4.20) drew off convincingly in the stretch to register a 4 1/4-length victory. Vivid Views was second, two lengths clear of Taylortwofeathers.
