Racing Hill too good in $500,000 Hempt Final

Racing Hill proved far too good for his rivals in the $500,000 Max Hempt Final at Mohegan Sun Pocono on Saturday night. (Watch Replay)

The son of Roll With Joe was able to lead through a torrid first quarter of 25.8 and from there on he was never headed.

Sprinting home in 27 seconds flat, he won easily by two and a half lengths in 1:49 - the fastest time by a three year old on a 1000 metre track this season.

Racing Hill has now had 16 starts for 7 wins and 6 placings. The first prize cheque in the Max Hempt Final takes his earnings to $649,662.

Bred and owned by Tom Hill, Racing Hill is the second foal of the unraced American Ideal mare Chasing Ideals.
