Special Joe
Special Joe and driver Josh Sutton teamed up to produce the first sub-1:50 mile of the season as they captured Saturday's Free For All in 1:49.4.
The first sub-1:50 clocking of the 2009 Chicagoland racing season was recorded on Saturday night as Gary and Kent Kreischer’s one-time claimer, Special Joe, continued to amaze his owner and trainer taking Saturday’s featured $18,000 Free For All by 1 ¾ lengths in a blazing 1:49.4.

In his latest triumph the gelded son of Jody’s Cam-Specially Fine stormed from fifth to first after an opening quarter in 28.0. Perfectly rated by driver Josh Sutton, the good looking four-year-old then proceeded to cruise through splits of 55.0 and 1:23.0 before storming home in 26.4 to wrap up the victory. Well To Do Guru (Casey Leonard) was second while Boo Bug (Todd Warren) finished third.

Special Joe, who captured the Rambling Willie Stake here on May 2, now boasts a record of six wins, four seconds and one third in 15 starts this season with earnings of $67,371.
