Outlaw Stateofmind ($2.70) sparkled in his career debut on Sunday afternoon (July 28), posting a resounding 1:55.3 victory in his $22,500 division of the Century Bets Stakes for two-year-old pacing colts and geldings at Century Downs on a card which featured $90,000 of juvenile stakes events.

The gelded son of Blue Burner and Cams Jam was primed for his debut by way of two victorious qualifiers, and trainer-driver Paul Davies wasted no time putting him in play. Outlaw Stateofmind seized command from post 4 and forced Criminal Record (Kelly Hoerdt) into the pocket through a :27.1 first quarter before rating middle splits of :56.4 and 1:26.2.

After making quick work of the first-over Cut A Rug (Ryan Grundy) up the far side, Outlaw Stateofmind powered clear on the far turn, drawing off to register a 7-3/4 length victory. Stolen Moment (David Kelly) emerged from a ground-saving trip to take second, while Criminal Record held third.

Davies co-owns Outlaw Stateofmind with Paul Sanders and Deborah Pinel. His 1:55.3 effort is a new Century track record for two-year-old pacing geldings, shaving one-fifth of a second off Senga Nitro's former standard.

The second Century Bets division saw Speaking Of Art ($3.30) and trainer-driver Keith Clark record a pillar-to-post victory as well, rating comfortable splits of :29.2, :59.4 and 1:28.3 before keeping Outlawfryreyesonly (Davies) 1-3/4 lengths at bay to win in 1:57.3. Clarke shares ownership of the Artspeak-Panagler colt, now a two-time winner in as many starts, with Doris McDougall and Robert Jones.

In the Emerald Filly Stakes, daughters of Custard The Dragon proved best in their respective $22,500 splits.

The first division saw Custards Crown ($2.30) and Brandon Campbell mount a first-over push out of midfield to overtake a breaking Two Tone Terror (Clark) on the far turn, and then subsequently evade a late-charging Treasure Horizon (Kelly) in 1:58.3. The daughter of Custard The Dragon and Contesta Hanover, owned by trainer Chris Lancaster along with Christopher Lambie, won her career debut by 2-1/4 lengths.

After breaking maiden on debut earlier in the month, Snow Shark ($11.40) ran her career tally to two-for-two with a dominant three-length win in her Emerald Filly split. Keith Clark — who owns, trains and drove the Custard The Dragon-Shark Fest filly — used two moves to navigate Snow Shark to the fore from post 7, and she sprinted off through the far turn to amass three lengths of clearance over the late-closing Bearcat Abigail (Phil Giesbrecht) in 1:57.1.
