Harness racing Down Under Winners with Carter Dalgety will now be uploaded on Tuesday afternoons instead of Monday. This will allow enough time to get the American weekend Sunday winners (Monday in New Zealand) researched and put into the article, where in the past this was touch and go to get done before publishing time.

Bit Of A Legend is a warrior.

Down Under pacer Bit Of A Legend, wins his 49th career race. The now 10yo stallion took his career earnings to over $2.5 million after his win at Yonkers Raceway on Tuesday. The son of Bettors Delight has been a dream horse for trainer Peter Tritton, driver Jordan Stratton and late owner Harry Vonknoblaunch.

Since entering the States he has clocked a career best time of 1:49.4 and is described by close associates as, “such a cool dude”.

Bit Of A Legend was bred in Christchurch, New Zealand by highly regarded breeder Brian West, and trained by Cran Dalgety. He was the winner of 20 races and over $800,000 in New Zealand and Australia, including the Australian Breeders Crown twice at ages 2 and 3, and the New Zealand Yearling Sales 2yo Open Final.

Down Under mares quinella the $137,000 Artiscape at Tioga Downs. New Zealand Bred mares Shartin N and Seaswift Joy N were seen finishing 1st (Shartin) and 2nd (Seaswift Joy) in a time of 1:49.1. Shartin N was challenged early by rival Caviart Ally as they blistered the first 400m in 25.3 seconds in a speed dual. But Shartin N won the battle and retained the lead for the duration of the race and held off the fast finishing Seaswift Joy N.

Shartin N was successful for trainer Jim King Jnr, driver Tim Tetrick and owners Richard Poillucci, Jo Ann Looney-King, and Tim Tetrick. While Seaswift Joy N did Trainer Tony Alagna, Driver Brian Sears and Owner Bradley Grant proud.

Also down under duo Brett Pelling and Andrew McCarthy finished in 3rd place with Caviart Ally.
