Down Under Mare creates history at the U.S. Harness Writers Association's Dan Patch Awards.
 
The New Zealand Bred and Australian raced mare Shartin N was crowned Pacer of the Year at the prestigious annual event. This astonishing achievement makes Shartin N the first ever Down Under racehorse to be named US Horse of the Year.
 
The daughter of Tintin In America had a simply faultless 2019 season winning 15 of her 19 races and earning a huge $982,177 in prize money.
 
A notable highlight of her racing season was in the Lady Liberty at The Meadowlands where she clocked a winning time of 1:46.4, making her the fastest pacing mare in history. A simply freakish harness racing horse that New Zealand and Australia can be very proud of. Especially her Canterbury breeder Grant Crabble. A remarkable achievement.

Also doing Down Under Proud at the Awards was harness driver Dexter Dunn who was crowned Driver of the Year. This especially is an amazing achievement by Dunn, who only competed in his first full year of driving in the United Stakes in 2019.
 
Dunn dominated New Zealand’s driving premiership for a decade and took USA Harness by storm in his first full year of driving.
 
His 2019 season statistics were:
 
Starts: 2696
1 st : 461
2 nd : 347
3 rd : 350
Earnings: $12,077,367
 
Down Under Pacer doing a great job for US Connections.
 
Duplicated N ran a great winning mile on Thursday at Dover Downs, clocking a sharp time of 1:50.2 for driver Tim Tetrick and Trainer Jim King Jnr. He was too good for the Dexter Dunn driven California Crusin in the $13,000 Pace.
 
This son of Somebeachsomewhere has had a successful North American career holding a lifetime mark of 1:49.4 and so far recording 6 wins from 30 starts for $180,325 in stake earnings. He looks set to continue excelling throughout the 2020 racing season.
 
The 6yo previously raced Down Under in New Zealand and Australia. Notably winning 6 of his 10 Australian race starts before being exported to the United States.
