Shartin, a New Zealand bred harness racing daughter of Tintin In America, who stands at Yirribee Pacing Stud, became the highest stake earner in America this year when she captured the $179,550 Golden Girls at The Meadowlands on Saturday (July 13).

The win advanced her stake tally in 2019 to $605,765, the result of 10 wins from 11 starts. She has now won nine races on end and has 36 wins from 48 lifetime starts.

One week earlier Shartin won the $30,000 Great Northeast Series in 1:49 under a hold at Harrah's Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Tintin In America was also represented by a 'new' winner, Only In America, who won at his second start at Ashburton, New Zealand.

Chasing The Wind, a two-year-old gelding bred and raised at Yirribee Pacing Stud, made a triumphant debut at Menangle on Saturday (July 13), winning the Group 2 $50,000 NSW Breeders Challenge True Blue Final. After enjoying a sweet trip, the gelding finished full of running to win in 1:53.5.

Another 'new' winner bred by Yirribee was the four-year-old King Fisher who won for the first time at Cobram in 1:59.1.

Million Dollar Cam landed at winning double at Dubbo on Sunday (July 14) with the three-year-olds Romero (1:59.6) and Getaloadathisgirl, and a 'new' winner at Pinjarra in Our Mista Kalle, a 1:55.9 winner at his second outing.

Tintin In America and Million Dollar Cam will be standing at Yirribee Pacing Stud this season alongside Lazarus, Lennytheshark, Fear The Dragon, Caribbean Blaster and Lombo Pocket Watch.
