Australian bred, Theartofconfusion A paced a blistering 1:49.3 around the half mile (800m) harness racing track of Yonkers Raceway on Saturday. Austin Siegelman steered home the 9yo gelding to win the $30,000 Pace.

The son of Riverboat King recorded the first ever sub 1:50 mile rate to be run around Yonkers Raceway. He was seen winning in dramatic fashion by finishing a staggering 2 seconds in front of the second place getter in the race. Before making his way to the US, Theartofconfusion was trained in Australia by Brett Cotterill and is the winner of 36 races lifetime with over $650,000 in earnings.

Hard on the heels of that performance the sensational mare Shartin N paced a world record mile at Harrahs Chester. As reported on Standardbred Canada site Shartin N erased Southwind Tempo's 1:48.3 record for older pacing mares with a 1:48 performance in the Great Northeast mares pace (Race 11). Driver Tim Tetrick indicated the 40-time winner had plenty in reserve.

"I just kept the bit in her mouth and let her pace to the wire," Tetrick said. "It's cool what she did, and everyone who watched knew she could have gone a lot more. I could have gone 1:47.2 with no problem."

Down Under superstar wins at Yonkers Raceway.

The New Zealand bred, Have Faith In Me N continued on his winning ways when he successfully paced the mile in 1:52.2 on Monday. The 8yo gelding was steered to victory by Jason Bartlett and is trained by Jose Godinez. The son of Bettors Delight is emphatically bred from well renowned mare Scuse Me. Prior to racing in North America, Have Faith In Me was trained in New Zealand by Mark Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen. He was the winner of 16 races and earned just shy of 1.5 million in stake money. His most impressive performance came out of Sydney’s Menangle Park where he won the Miracle Mile in a time of 1:47.5.
