Super Bowl

Race Summary

Super Bowl: A Super Fast Colt

Although it took Stanley Dancer quite a few tries to win his first Hambletonian, Dancer trained and drove Super Bowl to two perfect victories in 1:572 , and 1:562 , the latter a new world standard for three-year- old trotters in 1972.

Super Bowl was the eighth winner for his sire, Star's Pride, in 12 years, adding to the luster of his great sire's accomplishments in this most famous trotting race. Super Bowl's chief rival was the gifted Delmonica Hanover, a filly handled by the veteran Delvin Miller.

Delmonica was second in both heats and trotted miles that would have been world filly marks in chasing Super Bowl. But she never really bothered the winner in each heat. Super Bowl and Dancer were simply the best. The Bill Haughton stable entry of Flush and Spartan Hanover traded a pair of thirds with The Black Streak fourth in each heat.

It was a predictable end to this Hambletonian, and a "super" victory for Super Bowl, who won all three legs of the Triple Crown in 1972, the last trotter to do so.
