    Dear Steve,
    In your article about the Cricket Bars Futuirty this year you stated that Captain Bucko won it in the “track record time” of 19.891. He did run very fast, but last year’s winner “Flying T Rudy” won the Cricket Bars Futurity in a time of 19.881. I know that it probably isn’t too important to many people, but because I own “Flying T Rudy” sire and dam and am the breeder of him, it is somewhat important to me. Unless you know something different about the track record that isn’t published, would you let me know who is the track record holder?
    Thanks, Kent
