Hitting Away & Tropical Park

On January 24, 1963, Tropical Park Race Track, certain to set new betting and attendance records with 15 extra race dates, concluded its 43-day meeting with the $40,000 added Tropical Park Handicap at 1 1/8 miles for older horses.  Ogden Phipps’ Hitting Away, carrying less than 126 pounds, was expected to be the post-time favorite.
