I Can Doosit smashes NZ Record
Champion trotter I Can Doosit put in a superb performance to win the $28,500 Group 3 Auckland Co-Op Taxis City Of Sails Handicap Trot (2,700m) at Alexandra Park on Friday evening, defeating his rivals with ease and setting a new national record for the distance.
The dual Inter Dominion champ made light work of his 40m handicap, biding his time at the back of the field before sweeping past the field with breath-taking ease in the straight the final time to score by three and a half lengths from Raydon and Lleyton H.
I Can Doosit's time of 3:23.6 lowered Stig's 2009 mark for the standing 2,700m by a full second.
It was the Muscles Yankee gelding's eighth consecutive win in a row and 25th career win overall, boosting his bank balance to an impressive $933,432.
It was a great night for Breckon Bloodstock with I Can Doosit's full sister, Yankeedoosie also victorious, recording her third lifetime win when taking out the $20,400 Pure Air Handicap Trot earlier in the evening.
