Shartin - Back, and in Winning Form  

The New Zealand-bred sensation Shartin looks to have come through the COVID 19-enforced lockdown with flying colours.

The reigning US horse of the year has won a qualifier at Harrah’s Philadelphia in a pacy 1:51 after settling fourth, five lengths off the lead.

Bred by Canterbury’s Grant Crabbe, the seven-year-old daughter of Tintin In America has bankrolled over $2m in the U.S., pacing a best of 1:46.4.

In 2019 the wonder mare won 15 of 19 and opened her 2020 season with a win in 1:50 in a mares race at Dover Downs in March.

She was the first pacing mare ever to win US Horse of the Year.

In New Jersey the scene is set for a huge weekend of racing with 36 races set down for their two meetings.

Last week Dexter Dunn was the leading driver at Meadowlands with five wins from 26 races.

He has another busy weekend lined up for the Big M, with more drives confirmed for when racing resumes at Yonkers Raceway in New York next week.
