Part Shark rebuffed all challengers en route to a 1:52.4 all-age track record performance in the second annual $75,000 City Of Greater Sudbury Pace at Sudbury Downs on Saturday night.

Elimination winner Part Shark and driver Scott Coulter fired off the gate from Post 6 with Panda Bear (Anthony MacDonald) parked and pressing to the first quarter in :26.2 and the half in :54.1.

As Part Shark shook off that rival, Mr Coolie (Doug McNair) came charging three-wide and offered up another challenge past three-quarters in 1:23, but Part Shark dug in for the 1:52.4 triumph. Mr Coolie and Part Shark's stablemate, elim winner Secret Weapon (Gerry Belanger), finished just a half-length behind in second and third with Lookin For A Fight (David Dowling) right there in fourth.

The former Sudbury Downs track record of 1:54.1 was held by Anderlecht and Deuces And Jacks.

Part Shark has won 10 of his 26 starts this year including the Gold Cup and Saucer in Charlottetown, P.E.I. His earnings now stand at $146,305 for 2010 and $252,635 lifetime. Wayne Preszcator trains the four-year-old gelded son of Four Starzzz Shark-Pop Art for the Secret Weapon Stables of Waterloo, Ont.

The winner returned $7.20 as the 5-2 favourite.
