McDynamo Does It Again!
FAR HILLS, N.J. - McDynamo jumped into steeplechase immortality with a fourth consecutive victory in the Grade 1, $250,000 Breeders' Cup Grand National Steeplechase at the Far Hills Races on Saturday. A 9-year-old, McDynamo took over from Mauritania on the final run down the backstretch and galloped home to win by 22 lengths with jockey Jody Petty aboard. Chivite was second, and Mixed Up was third. McDynamo covered the 2 5/8 miles over soft turf in 5:58.20. A two-time Eclipse winner trained by Sanna Hendriks, McDynamo earned $150,000 to pass Lonesome Glory atop the list of American steeplechasers in terms of career earnings. McDynamo has won $1,028,104 in his six seasons of steeplechasing. "He does things so easily, it's weird," said Hendriks. "He doesn't look like he's working hard at all, and other horses struggle, especially in going like this. I guess that's what greatness is - it's horses who can put it all together that become this good. They have the right mind, the right body, the right everything." McDynamo improved to 6 for 6 over the Far Hills course. Since winning his maiden here in 2001, McDynamo has added 12 more wins, including four Grade 1 scores in the Breeders' Cup. FULL STORY
