Champion Canadian mare Dreamfair Eternal racked up her 50th career win when claiming the $245,000 Lady Liberty Free-For-All for harness racing pacing mares at the Meadowlands today (Saturday August 6). The 2010 Canadian Horse Of the Year and O'Brien winner stopped the clock in 1:49.2.

Fresh from her win the $385,000 Roses Are Red Final at Mohawk on July 23, Dreamfair Eternal has now won $2,187,975 in career purses. It was her fifth win in 2011.

Driver Brian Sears, who was steering the 7-year-old Camluck mare for the first time, said he had watched videos of her and was not surprised by her toughness.

"We wound up first up but she was always pacing strongly. She stayed on right to the wire," Sears said.

He positioned her fourth early before taking the mare to the lead at the three fifths of a mile mark. From there it was catch me if you can - and place-getters Rock N Soul (Yannick Gingras) and Ticket To Rock (Jody Jamieson) simply couldn't.

John and Mary Lamers of Ingersoll (Ontario) bred the mare. Ingersoll also owns her.

"She is a dream come true and the reason why we all breed racehorses. She had six months off and started a bit slow but has really come into her own now. Patrick Fletcher looks after like a child and all credit must go to him.

"This mare will tell me when she's had enough and could very well race again next season. We also have a breeding career to look forward to with her," Lamers said.

Dreamfair Eternal paid $6.60 to win.
