Lucan Hanover is now four-for-four in 2016, with the most recent victories coming in back-to-back legs of the George Morton Levy Series at Yonkers Raceway with driver George Brennan. Is there some sort of special chemistry with this new horse and driver combination?

On Saturday night at Yonkers, Brennan guided the six-year-old pacer to a wire-to-win in the second leg lid-lifter by holding off a hard-closing Texican N (driven by Jordan Stratton) for the victory. Rght after the wire those two horses' sulkies hooked wheels. Brennan was ejected from the racebike, with Lucan Hanover loose on the track.

Video captured and posted to YouTube shows Brennan imploring the pacer to stop, and Lucan Hanover – with lines appearing to be wrapped around one of his hind legs – graciously and thankfully agreeing.

The duo then returned to the winner's circle for their post-victory photo op with added applause from the Yonkers' faithful.
