The irrepressible Ben's Cat came from off the pace with a big rush on the outside to register his third consecutive win in the $200,000 Parx Dash Handicap (gr. IIIT) on the turf at the Pennsylvania track July 12.
The remarkable Ben's Cat surged through an opening at mid-stretch to put his head in front in the final strides, capturing the inaugural running of the $200,000 Fabulous Strike Handicap at Penn National Race Course.
Perhaps bettors felt Ben's Cat had lost a step when they sent him off at 10-1 in the $150,000 Parx Dash Handicap June 17, but the 6-year-old dispelled that notion with an emphatic two-length victory in course record time.
