It was a day full of records that were broken in Nichols, New York on Sunday afternoon as three Stakes Records for the Tompkins Geers gave way to new heirs.

In the two-year old colt and gelding pacer division, Wind Me Up was in the last race of the day but didn’t disappoint fans or bettors as the two-year old son of Bettors Delight-Breathe captured the final division in a new stakes record of 1:52.

David Miller made the trip up from New Jersey to steer the two-year old colt for George Teague, Jr., and he sent the pacer to the front through fractions of :27.1, :55.4, and 1:24 before coasting away from the field on cruise control in :28 flat. It was the second win in two career starts for Wind Me Up who is owned by George Teague Jr. Inc and Theodore Gewertz.

In the three-year old colt and gelding trot division, Aruba Vacation and Fern Paquet, Jr. pressed to the lead past the three eighths pole and trotted away from the field in a new track record time of 1:56.1. It was the third win in six seasonal starts for thee three-year old homebred son of Dream Vacation-Dixie Hit for trainer-owner Guy Howard, and with the win Aruba Vacation increased his seasonal bankroll to more than $68,000.

A total of eleven Tompkins-Geers races were contested on Sunday afternoon, and here’s a recap of the divisional winners in their respective categories:
