Foreclosure N Sizzles in 1:48.4 American National Win
Foreclosure N pulled out all the stops in the $182,000 American National Aged Pace, romping to a 1:48.4 victory at Balmoral Park on Saturday night, Nov. 10.
Driven by Andy Miller, the son of Rocknroll Hanover left hard from post six and never looked back, snapping off fractions of :26.2, :53 and 1:19.
“At that point I thought, we had gone so fast already, that we might as well keep on going fast,” Miller laughed. “I really stirred my horse up behind the gate and scooted him out of there quickly. He was really fired up and it was pretty evident that I wasn’t going to be able to shut him down, so I just let him go.”
Foreclosure N then rattled off a :29.4 final quarter clocking to prevail by 6˝ lengths over runner-up Golden Receiver (Tim Tetrick) and third-place finisher Razzle Dazzle (John Campbell).
The win was the sixth of the year for Foreclosure N and his eighth lifetime. He added $87,360 to his earnings, pushing his seasonal bankroll to $268,627 and his career account to $773,190 for owners Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi of Pennsylvania, and the JJK Stable of Florida.
Foreclosure N’s winning time was a full second off Holborn Hanover’s record mile of 1:47.4, set in 2006 in this same event.
