Late Monday evening at Northfield Park in the $19,000 Fillies and Mares Open Handicap, the harness racing world record for four-year-old pacing mare on a half mile track was tied by Bye Bye Felcia in the 11th race on the program.

The daughter of Woodstock, from the Camluck mare, Tea Time, left from post seven for driver Aaron Merriman, was parked out to the opening quarter mile in :27 and then took control of the lead to the half mile in :54.2, the three-quarters in 1:22 and pulled away to win by three and one-half lengths in 1:50.3.

The world mark is now co-held with Lakeisha Hall (Matt Kakaley), set in 2017, also at Northfield Park.  

The $232,000 career winning mare is trained by William Rhodes, owned by Leah Rhodes of Clarksville, PA and was bred by Billy Walters and Joe McLead of Sugar Valley Farm in Ohio, where Woodstock stands stud. She went off as the betting favorite paying $5.00 to win.
