Portland, February 27th. Here’s a horse racing update, just for fun… A 4-year-old Quarter Horse named, Danner, broke a 16-year-old racetrack record at Portland Meadows by clocking 300 yards in just 15.51 seconds. Jockey, Jose Zunino, rode Danner into the record books. Danner has now won 7 of 17 starts and made over $43,000. (Photo credit, Erin Palmer.)
Danner had struggled a bit making the transition to running against older horses, but he got back on track on Monday at Portland Meadows as he set a new track record for 300 yards when he completed the course in 15.51 seconds. The old record was set by Thinkin Strawfly who ran 300 yards on April 30, 1995 in 15.55.
