CHRISTEN ME SCORES 42nd CAREER WIN
Christen Me found the one and a quarter mile trip at Yonkers to his liking when notching his second USA win of the year on April 23.
The former Kentuckiana Lodge Grand Circuit star pressed forward from the give gate, taking control beginning the final half for driver, Mark McDonald.
Christen Me, now 11 to Northern Hemisphere time, held the home straight charge by three quarters of a length from outsider Fireball.
Sent out the favourite in a $17,500 conditioned pace, Christen Me ran the equivalent of 1700m in 2:00.1.
Another former NZ pacer in Kenrick ran fourth, while another ex-Cran Dalgety prepared pacer in Texican tired to run eighth.
This was the 42nd career win and the 10th in North American for Christen Me, a gelded son of Christian Cullen and Splendid Dreams (Dream Away-Scuse Me).
Christen Me was sold and exported to the United States, in March 2017, after being a dual Australasian Grand Circuit champion.
Since July last year, he has been trained by Lance Hudson.
