Sunland Park: Fearless Anthony sets another record


Fearless Anthony, a one-time $8,000 claimer and now a bona-fide allowance horse who may go on to even bigger and better things, posted a second straight track record here Tuesday, covering five furlongs in 55.86 seconds while defeating allowance company. The effort shaved .01 of a second off the previous mark, set by Absolutely True in the Budweiser Handicap here Feb. 9.

Fearless Anthony, trained by Chris Hartman, was coming off a track-record performance, as the 7-year-old sizzled 5 1/2 furlongs here in 1:01.62 on Feb. 12. He was ridden by Casey Lambert in both races.

Fearless Anthony now has 17 wins from 57 starts for earnings of over $182,000.
