When Reaza Grunter took out last Friday night’s heat of the San Simeon Classic at Gloucester Park she set a new Track Record for a harness racing mare with a rate of 1:54.0 for the 2130 metres.

She took .2 of a second off the previous record rate of 1:54.2 set by WA mare Tricky Styx in October last year.

Her driver Lauren Tritton took a cautious approach early out of the gate allowing Reaza Grunter to find her feet before dashing the daughter of Christian Cullen to the lead after 500 metres and then running her rivals ragged to win eased down by 12.5 metres.

Reaza Grunter covered the last lap in 57 seconds and final quarter in 27.9 and she will take a power of beating in the $50,000 Group Two San Simeon Classic on Inter Dominion Grand Final night this week.

Gloucester Park was in superb condition last Friday night as not only did Reaza Grunter set a track record by Inter Dominion favourite Lazarus broke Im Themightyquinn’s track record for 2536 metres when he took out the last heat of the Inter Dominion.

There is no doubt that Gloucester Park will handle the four Inter Dominion runs in a fortnight with aplomb.
