Inspired Art's Streak Hits Double Digits

Published: August 29, 2015 06:30 pm EDT

With his win streak stretching back for nearly a full year, Inspired Art made it 10 in a row on Saturday afternoon in the Preferred class at St. John's Racing and Entertainment Centre.

Inspired Art started his win streak back on Sept. 1, 2014 and is a perfect six-for-six in 2015. The 10-year-old Artiscape gelding averages a winning margin of just over 10 lengths for his current crusade.

On Saturday, Dustylane Wildbill came within half a length of his stablemate Inspired Art at the three-quarters before the streaking pacer took off in the stretch to win the $535 feature by 10 lengths, equalling his season's best time of 2:01.3. Dustylane Wildbill finished second and Go With It was third to complete a sweep of the top three spots for local leading trainer Scott Forward. Stoveonfire was Forward's fourth starter in the six-horse field and also picked up a cheque finishing fifth.

Inspired Art was driven by Shane Forward and is owned by Elizabeth Courtney of Maddox Cove, Newfoundland. He has won 42 races lifetime and is closing in on $200,000 in purse earnings.

Live harness racing continues on Monday, Sept. 7 in Goulds, Newfoundland.
