Frac Daddy wins on third type of surface

The Sports NetworkOctober 18, 2013 

Lexington, KY ( - Some horses run best on turf. Some only race on dirt tracks and a few like synthetic tracks as well. Not too many have posted victories on all three types.

Thursday at Keeneland, 3-year-old Frac Daddy joined a small group of horses who have wins on dirt, turf and synthetic.

Trained by Ken McPeek, the Arkansas Derby runner-up notched a win on Keeneland's Polytrack main surface in an off-the-turf allowance race. The gray colt has one win on each kind of track.

"He's done them all. When he's good, he's good," McPeek said of Thursday's 3 1/2-length victory.

The colt has earned $383,816 in 11 career starts for owners Magic City Thoroughbred Partners.
