Do you remember how RESTLESS CON won the 1990 Haskell Invitational?

Please share your thoughts. For the result of the race please log on:

Did he won in front-running style or late rushing. Does anyone remembers?

Thank you very much.

I don't remember, but I did find the chart. :wink:

The comments note : "allowed to settle just off the early leaders, moved to the front between foes shortly after entering the far turn, held a narrow advantage into the lane then drove clear."

The chart further shows he was running in third until the turn, and that his winning margin was 2 1/4 lengths.

I was there that day. I remember there were two men that were sitting near me in the grandstand that let out screams of joy when this horse won -ran up the steps like they had just hit the lottery. It was one of the weaker renewals of the Haskell, for sure.

Bohemia,

Thank you so much for your comments on the upset win by Restless Con
His overall race records reflects that he was a very talented race horse
when running his front-running or near front-running racing style.

Later he excelled in his racing career by establishing a track record at Golden Gates for 8-1/2 furlongs (Dirt) in 1:39 2/5 with fractionals of 22:50; 45:30; and 1:08.30. As far as I am aware that is the world record among grey Thoroughbreds.

Here is the 1990 Haskell Invitational chart

Yes, later in his career Restless Con did prove to be a talented runner. I was pretty young that day at Monmouth - my father and I used to attend every renewal of the Haskell. I remember being shocked when Restless Con won. I'm pretty sure I bet the Phipps horse, Rhythm, because I was always a fan of that stable.

Would like to learn more on Restless Con's win in the Haskell Invitational of 1990.

Thank you so much for your valuable response. I really appreciate it.
Still looking to uncover an entire gray son of him who could keep alive
Native Dancer's gray-tail-male lineage. Thanks again TJ.
