Buck I St Pat and driver Tim Tetrick were
simply awesome in the $73,000 Allerage
Fillies & Mares Trot on Saturday afternoon
at the Red Mile.
Dynamite Diva (George Brennan) had the best gate speed of the group of five, hitting the quarter in :28.3. Classic Lane (John Campbell) moved from fourth, and Dynamite Diva made a costly break as Brennan went for grips, taking her out of competition through the :57 half.
Buck I St Pat was situated second over behind Up Front Hotsey (Ron Pierce) as the four mares passed three-quarters in 1:26.1. As the field hit the stretch, Tetrick tipped the favourite and she responded by annihilating the field with a 27.4 closer to win in 1:54 by some 10 lengths. Classic Lane second. Diana Hall third.
Mickey Burke Jr. confirmed after the race that Buck I St Pat, trained by Ron Burke and owned by Howard Taylor, Edwin Gold, Abraham Basen and breeder Ronald Fuller, will be back on track in 2010. The Jailhouse Jesse - Name It Something mare notched her 40th lifetime win.
