Already a World Record holder, Hidden Viggorish added to her laurels when she captured the $25,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot in 1:54.1 - a track record for older trotting mares – at The Meadows on Wednesday afternoon.

At three, Hidden Viggorish went an electrifying 1:53.1 mile at The Meadows - the fastest ever by a sophomore trotter on a five eighths mile track. Since then, the six-year-old daughter of SJs Caviar-Tia Maria has flashed intermittent brilliance. Her performance Wednesday was one of those shining efforts, as she got away second for Brian Zendt, then powered to the lead past the quarter pole.

By the top of the stretch, she was clear seven lengths, with the clock the only remaining opponent. Her mile was a fifth of a second faster than the previous mark set by Flo N Easy in 2005. Upside Yankee was more than nine lengths back in second while Toms OK Lady finished third.

Bill Zendt trains the homebred, who pushed her career bankroll to $374,608, for Harmony Spring Stable of Pittsburgh, PA.
