J Mancuso Dominates the Portland Meadows Fall Derby Finals

J Mancuso made it four wins in a row as he and Luis Torres cruised to an impressive win in the $15,550 Portland Meadows Fall Derby Finals on Sunday afternoon.  Sent off as the 6/5 favorite in the field ten, J Mancuso broke right on cue and headed right to the front.  He contested with second choice CM Got Overserved but gradually drew away to win by half a length in the end.  CM Got Overserved finished up in second with Sensor running third. 

“That was a no problem trip there,” said winning jockey Luis Torres.  “He broke straight and really ran well.”

The final time of 19.82 was very fast for the 400 yard distance.  So fast in fact, it was only 1/100th of a second behind Victorys Wicked Lad’s track record time of 19.81, set back in 2009. 

J Mancuso was trained to the win by leading Quarter Horse trainer Juan Sanguino who continues to dominate the Quarter Horse standings.   J Mancuso has now won seven of sixteen career starts and has racked up $32,929 in career earnings for owners Silvestre Sanguino and Jimmy Cancino.


Eyes on Brimmer takes the Director’s Handicap

 

Portland, OR —  Eyes on Brimmer closed right down the center of the Portland Meadows track to get up and win the $8,500 Director’s Handicap on Friday evening at Portland Meadows. Sent off as the 9/5 second choice, had to overcome a fast breaking Hannibal Lector who took command right off the bat. But with 100 yards or so left to go, Eyes on Brimmer and jockey Tim Neal cranked it into overdrive and picked up a solid win, scoring by a half-length going away in the end. The win was the third consecutive score for Eyes on Brimmer who races for owner Malon Cowgill. Benito Curiel was the trainer of the winning runner.

“He broke great this time,” said jockey Tim Neal. “He was just galloping and then about halfway through I gave him a little tap and he just exploded.”

Snip N Dale who was sent off as the slight favorite got up to finish second, just a head ahead of Hannibal Lector who finished up in third. The final time for the 350 yards was 18.47 seconds.
