Top flight trotting mare Maori Time wrote her way into the Australasian square-gaiting history annuls when she stopped the clock in a staggering 1.51.5-mile performance at Menangle. In a stunning display of sheer speed and power the daughter of Pegasus Spur took 1.7 seconds off the previous record held by Pegasus Spur’s son Flying Isa! This was the star mare’s 24th career win, she now has close to $420,000 in stakes. Congratulations to her owner/breeder Fred Crews.
Pegasus Spur added to a stellar weekend with a siring double at Auckland when Amanda’s Spur and CK Spur both greeted the judge.
American Ideal’s son Soho Tribeca became harness racing’s latest millionaire when he ran 3rd in the 2018 Miracle Mile, he was shut out late in the race after sitting in the chair, he now easily sits among our best pacers.
American Ideal had good winners in Triple Eight at Auckland, Son Of A Tiger at Addington and he sired a double at Ashburton when Patanjili and Prada’s Ideal Dahling got the chocolates.
Bettor’s Delight continues to dominate the yearling sales ring, he produced the top colt and top filly at the Australian Pacing Gold sale in Sydney. On the race track his early juveniles won the Group 3 Sapling stakes at Ashburton where War Dan Delight was successful and Kayla Marie won the sires stake at Addington on debut.
