The Jimmy Takter trained Best Ears created a slice of North American breeding history at tonight's (Monday July 4) Mohawk harness racing meeting in Ontario. The 2-year-old colt became Shark Gesture's first North American winner when taking out the first of the 10 races programmed.

Driven by Scott Zeron, the son of Shark Gesture and Extreme Dream (Jate Lobell) paced his mile in 1;52.3 with prior sectionals of 13.1, 27.2, 56.1, 1:24.3, and 1:38.1.

Best Ears trailed and then proved too strong in the stretch to run away with an easy five length victory. He was 3/2 in the betting and paid $5 to win.

Ys Charlie (Sylvain Filion) and pacemaker Addwater (Jody Jamieson) finished second and third respectively.

It was Best Ears second start after finishing eighth on debut, also at Mohawk, on June 27.

FOOTNOTE: Shark Gesture has left a winner 'Down Under'. That was when Gesturestar won at the Penrith meeting in Australia last on June 2.
