Agreed and Bolt did it in a Stakes. Not his first career run (I didnt say start....lol).

I spent a summer in Chicago working. It was the year Arlington burned down and the rental I had was a mile from the Track...ugh. Headed down to Hawthorne early one Saturday for the replacement card and in the first a maiden was a big colt that was 12-1 ML and bet down to 2-1. His name was Meadowlake and he won by 23.

I flew on a leg of a flight many years later next to the Jockey Juvenal Diaz. That race came up and he said Trainer Bert Sonnier almost ran the horse in the Hopeful as first time starter. The track had 8 inches of sand on top and Meadowlake went in 109 when Stakes horses could barely crack 1;12. TGJB has some stories about the figures when he was in the Ragozin office. Wayne Lukas came and walked the track and said it was impossible to run that fast in that much sand.

I have no doubt after what I saw yesterday this horse would have BLOWN AWAY any Maiden filed in the Country. I'm sure there are offers.
