New Zealand Harness Jewels winner wins in fine style early in his North American harness racing career.

Top Down Under pacer Jacks Legend made his winning debut at Yonkers Raceway on Saturday. The New Zealand bred gelding was too good for his field in the $42,000 Open pace, clocking a solid time of 1:52 around the half mile (800m) track. Jacks Legend held off challenges from other quality down under horses in Saying Grace N and Runrunjimmydunn N.

The son of Bettor's Delight current Owner and trainer Richard Banca and driver Jason Bartlett look to be in for a successful North American racing career with the former down under pacer.

While racing in New Zealand, Jacks Legend was the winner of 10 races and over $450,000 in prize money for Hall of Fame trainer Barry Purdon. He placed at Group level 12 times, with the highlights of his down under career winning the 3yo Emerald Harness Jewels in a time of 1:51.8, and running 2nd in the New Zealand Cup to champion pacer Lazarus.

Consistent Australian pacer wins at Yonkers Raceway.

Former Down Under pacer Catcha Lefty A won the $14,500 Pace on Monday at Yonkers Raceway. The 7yo gelding paced a winning mile in 1:53 for trainer Rob Harmon and driver Jim Marohn Jr. It was the son of Village Jasper's fifth win of the season in North America, taking in earnings past $42,000 for 2019.

Bred and formerly raced in Australia, Catcha Lefty was the winner of 26 races, placing on 22 occasions and won just shy of $300,000 in stake money. He was the winner of 7 out of first 8 starts, also being a winner at Group Level on two occasions and placing at Group level on three other occasions. The highlight of his Down Under racing career winning the Queensland Pacing Derby in Australia.
