Bettim Laura found the wire just in the nick of time on Sunday afternoon at Truro Raceway, and in doing so she picked up the biggest win of her career.

In rein to trainer/driver Jeff Lilley, Bettim Laura front-stepped to a nose decision in the featured $12,600 Nova Scotia Stake for two-year-old pacing fillies.

The daughter of Largo-Bettim Amanda shot to the top from post six and laid down fractions of :28.2, 1:00.1 and 1:32 before fending off a late challenge by Emily Putnam en route to posting the career-best clocking of 2:03.4. Emily Putnam was a determined runner-up and Pictonian Pasha was a distant third.

Danny Purcell of Newport, NS bred and owns the freshman who has put together a 2-2-3 record in 15 starts this season. The payday boosted her bankroll to $15,017.
