First Dude on the Verge of New Heights

    First Dude edged a little closer to reaching his next few milestones with the victory of Time to Cruise at Parx Racing.    

    Frankie Pennington was aboard the 3-year-old colt bred in Pennsylvania by Ocala’s Best A Luck Farm, in a $67,250 allowance optional claimer at the distance of one mile. Time to Cruise stalked the early pace, then made a strong stretch move to get up by a head. He paid $7.20 and received a check for $42,000, which increased his total to $186,895 on a record of 4-3-1 in 13 starts. 

First Dude has had 42 winners of 90 races in 2023, and his runners have won 981 races overall. They have earned $25,931,107.
