Wilkes-Barre, PA - Shartin N, aggressively driven by Tim Tetrick, won the $270,000 Breeders Crown Mares Pace Final at The Downs at Mohegan Sun on Oct. 27.

The time for the mile was 1:52 over the "sloppy" track.

Supplemented to the race, the New Zealand-bred five-year-old mare Shartin N, by Tintin In America--Bagdarin, flew from the wings of the gate and denied the lead from a quick-leaving Twinkle. Call Me Queen Be took a spot in third on the inside while outside-launching Caviart Ally got the fourth spot.

Shartin N cut the first quarter in :26.1 as Twinkle drafted behind her.

Heading for a :54.3 half, Lakeisha Hall made a bid that brought her close to the leader, but she could not get farther from there. Caviart Ally took a shot three-wide, chasing Shartin N in a brisk 1:23 three-quarters.

Twinkle was stuffed on the inside and Pure Country began to make an impression closing as Caviart Ally pushed Shartin N to her limit. This was enough to get over the finish line first in 1:52. Pure Country made it into the show spot behind Caviart Ally.

Jim King Jr. trains Shartin N for owners Richard Pollucci and Jo Ann Looney. She paid $3.00, $2.20, and $2.10.
