Record-Setting Redlandbethanyjean Torches Truro

Redlandbethanyjean added her named to the history books at Truro Raceway thanks to her track record-setting score in a division of the Phil Pinkney Memorial for two-year-old pacing fillies.

With Brodie MacPhee at the lines, Redlandbethanyjean took command from Post 1 and never looked back.  She rolled the field through fractions of :27.4, :56.4 and 1:26 before scooting home in :28.4 to win by 6-1/4 lengths over Marina Del Ray in 1:54.4.  Woodmere Jade was third.

The clocking erased the former record of 1:55.3 established by JJ Scarlett on October 17, 2021.

The daughter of Artspeak-Machnbyrd Princess now boasts a 2-1-0 record from six assignments.  Tom Weatherbie trains the speedy lass for Redland Farms of Bible Hill, NS.

Saulsbrook Mabel took her $6,845 division in 1:59 for the driver Mark Bradley.

Sent off as the 1-5 favourite, the daughter of Malicious-Southwind Oasis marched the field through fractions of :29.4, 1:00.2 and 1:30.2 before using a :28.3 kicker to win by 5-3/4 lengths over Itsuptoyou.  Third prize went to Cant Be Touched.

The homebred is undefeated in two career starts for trainer John Baxter and partner Saulsbrook Stables Inc.

Batterup Hanover laid off a hot, early pace en route to posting a going away victory in the $2,500 winners over pace for trainer/driver Paul Langille. The four-year-old son of Betting Line-Beachbunny Hanover got away fourth and watched American Risk roll the field through fractions of :27 and :56.3. He was still on the lead at the three-quarter pole in 1:26.1, but Privilege was first-over and driving with Batterup Hanover positioned on his cover. Batterup Hanover rocketed home in :27.1 to win by 6-3/4 lengths over Frontier Cruise in 1:54. American Risk faded to finish third.

Debbie Francis, Rosanne Langille, Douglas Lowthers and Chantel Langille share ownership on the gelding who improved his 2022 record to 2-1-2 from 11 starts with the win. The 10-time winner recently surpassed $50,000 in lifetime earnings.
