Turf Paradise: Fast Track sets track record for a mile on grass

Email

Fast Track proved true to his name Tuesday, as the 7-year-old gelding posted a course record at a mile on grass at Turf Paradise, getting the trip in 1:34.06.

Owned by David Bloom and trained by Molly Pearson, the son of Taste of Paradise needed to set the record to prevail, as he gamely beat Tones by a nose under Tammi Piermarini in the optional-claiming contest.

Fast Track ($10.20) beat the old mark of 1:34.12 set by Mutak Gold in 2009.
