 Second fastest Hambo ever 1:51 

 

Third straight win for sire Muscles Yankee-himself the 1998 Hambo winner

 

Pierce the ONLY driver with 3 Oaks and 3 Hambos

 

1:22.2 a record to the 3/4s in Hambo history

 

Takter wins the Hambo 13 YEARS apart-1997-Malabar Man-ironically-that was the last Hambo that both Pierce and Campbell were NOT in

 

STILL NO trainer has won the Hambo and the Pace in the same season

 

Jimmy Takter's $1.1 million day marks the third time that a trainer has had a million $ day in the last calendar year. Casie Coleman this year on NA Cup night and Greg Peck last year on Hambo Day

 

2 world records, 1 track record set and 1 track record tied Saturday

 

No Million $ wins in the last decade for Dave Miller and George Brennan-but both got money in the Hambo and Brennan hit the board in the Oaks too

 

17th Hambo final with BOTH Campbell and Lachance in it
