Maori Time produced a harness racing scintillating track-record run to end Keystone Del’s winning streak and take the $32,275  Aldebaran Park Maori Mile at Bendigo tonight Saturday the 17th of January.

Trained and driven by masterful educator of squaregaiters Chris Lang, Maori Time, a five-year-old mare by Pegasus Spur out of Sundonna, took off at the 800m employing catch-me-if-you-can tactics – and her rivals couldn’t. She had led from the pole draw but when she hit top gear mid-race, no one was going to nab her.

A 28secs third quarter saw Maori Time skip clear as Keystone Del began to paddle as he pursued the frontrunner.

Elegant Image (Kate Gath for trainer Andy Gath) tracked the winner and finished on well for second, Keystone Del (Blake Fitzpatrick for trainer Nicole Molander) battling away in third place.

The winner’s mile rate of 1:55.6 set a new track record over the 1650m trip at Bendigo.

Stoned I Am ran well for fourth and Realmein was a nice fifth after not having much luck in the last lap.
