Fun Guy Breaks Maiden at Aqueduct
Apr. 12 – New York-bred Fun Guy, with Eric Cancel in the irons, charged down the lane to win the eighth at Aqueduct, a 1 1/16 mile contest on turf. The win came against a field of ten and marked the gelding’s first career victory.
From the 8-hole, Fun Guy broke sharply and settled into a stalking position behind Dorees Giant Neal and Here Comes Michael. The former, Dorees Giant Neal took the field through a quarter-mile in :23.19 and half in :48.51. At that point, Fun Guy began his run, clocking six-furlongs in 1:13.14 and putting up to 4 ½ lengths between himself and the rest of field. He hit the wire 3 ½ lengths in front in 1:45.22.
