Consistent Down Under harness racing pacer Paduka N headlined a great result in the 12th race at the Meadowlands on Saturday night where Down Under horses were the first four home and three down under horsemen were also involved.

Paduka N has been a hit since entering the US harness scene winning four races with five seconds and three thirds for $47,000 in stake earnings to date with a record of 1:49.3 to his credit. Saturday night’s win was a big effort.

Starting from the 9 gate Down Under driver Todd McCarthy lit up the 7yo son of Bettors Delight to roar across the field to lead easily.

Then just on the half mile point Down Under pacer Bechers Brook A was sent on his way and took over control of the field to lead the field the rest of the journey.

It was a dog fight in the final stretch between the two Down Under pacers but Todd McCarthy got the very best out of Paduka N to get up and win in the last stride, clocking 1:50.4 for trainer Katricia Adams.

Second in was Bechers Brook A and third was Seeuinnashville A. Fourth place went to a Down Under trio of Love The Blues N and down under driver Andrew McCarthy and trainer Kelvin Harrison.

Even more impressive was Let It Ride's spectacular victory in the featured $28,000 Preferred Handicap on the night. Let It Ride was huge winning in 1:48.1 and he lead another all New Zealand bred trifecta with Hesa Kingslayer N running second and Vettel N coming third.
