Norman “Lynn” and Lola Cash’s former $12,500 claim Beverly Park will attempt to notch his ninth consecutive victory Sunday in a conditioned allowance event at Churchill Downs.
Lynn and wife Lola burst onto the Kentucky racing scene in 2021. Lynn took out his trainer’s license this year and entered Thursday with 134 starts and 25 wins. Along with being involved in racing, Lynn is extremely accomplished in the construction industry. He started Built Wright Homes as a small home construction and remodeling company that has expanded to serve several states across the country.
Lynn and Lola reside in Midway, Ky. but their horses have traveled to 10 racetracks so far this year. Many of their horses that run in Kentucky are under the care of veteran horseman Jerry Dixon.
“(Beverly Park) has just been a great horse to have in the barn,” Lynn said. “He’s in great form and has been so awesome to us since we claimed him (at Belterra Park on Aug. 5). It’s been an absolute thrill.”
Through racing Wednesday at Churchill Downs, the Cash’s horses have made 13 starts at the Fall Meet with two victories. One of their wins was a $127,000 allowance race on Nov. 11 when Beverly Park cruised to a 5 ½-length score. The other was Wednesday when recent $62,500 claim Sir Alfred James held off the late charge of Long Range Toddy to win the featured $148,000 allowance event.
Beverly Park is the only horse in North America to have a perfect record from at least eight starts this year. The next highest horse is West Virginia-bred Muad’dib, who is 6-for-6. Greeley and Ben leads the nation in wins this year with a record of 14-11-2-0.
Beverly Park drew post No. 11 in Sunday’s 6 ½-furlong featured event. The accomplished 4-year-old son of Munnings will be ridden by John McKee and face 10 rivals in Race 8 at 4:36 p.m. (all times Eastern). First post is 1 p.m.
