Evergreen eleven year old Tinted Cloud/Carnlough Bay gelding Smoken Up showed that there is plenty of life still in the old legs by smashing the track record at Bray Raceway Ballarat on Thursday December 26 in winning the $30,000 Laser Electrical Lightning Mile for M0 or better class horses.

Burning across the face of the field from gate seven in unison with Keayang Cullen (gate eight) outside him, Smoken Up was able to lead running into the first turn parking Keayang Cullen, with the hot favourite Restrepo trailing from the pole after being unable to match the other pair.

Allowed to bowl, Smoken Up returned a mile rate of 1-53.1 after quarters of 26.3, 30.3, 28.7 and 27.9, gaining a $10,000 bonus for breaking the track record by .4 of a second.

It was Smoken Up's 70th victory in 136 race appearances for stakes in excess of $3,514,427.
