PA --- Pacing mares divisional leader Shartin N upped her seasonal bankroll to $590,040, most among all North American harness horses, with a sensational 1:48.4 effort in taking her $30,000 Great Northeast Open Series divisional event Sunday (July 29) at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono.

Shartin N was a neck winner over Tequila Monday in a lifetime best 1:48.4.

Driver Tim Tetrick reserved Shartin N off the early pace, which saw Call Me Queen Be take the lead in a :26.2 opener, then get passed in turn by Caviart Ally and then Tequila Monday before the :54 half. Shartin N began an uncovered march towards the lead on the second turn, but Tequila Monday still had the advantage on her right-hand neighbor at the 1:21.2 three-quarters and through the turn, and to halfway down the stretch.

But then Shartin N showed amazing grit, continuing forward in the :27.2 kicker and finally getting by the ultra-stubborn Tequila Monday by a neck, with Caviart Ally 1-1/4 lengths off the top pair. The victorious daughter of Tintin In America advanced to just one off the continental lead for victories with her 12th of the campaign for trainer Jim King Jr. and owners Richard Pollucci and Jo-Ann Looney King.

Despite being unbeaten in two GNOS starts, Shartin N may see action in one or more of the series’ last four cardings in August; currently she isn’t even in the top ten in the point standings, which determine eligibility for each division’s $100,000 championship at 1-1/4 miles on Sept. 2 at Pocono.

Milton, ON --- Shartin N, who made a break but recovered to finish fourth in last week’s eliminations, redeemed herself with a prominent effort in the $370,000 Roses Are Red final on Saturday night (June 16) at Woodbine Mohawk Park.

Shartin N was a 1:49.3 winner in the Roses Are Red final.

Blazin Britches blasted off the gate for David Miller with Shartin N pressuring outside and Tequila Monday settling in along the rail through an opening quarter in :25.4. However, an aggressive Tim Tetrick made a quick decision and cleared to the front with Shartin N to take command.


Blue Moon Stride moved first-over for Corey Callahan to provide competition for Shartin N who made the half in :54.2, while L A Delight got rolling down the back straight with a three-wide move.


Shartin N continued her lead to the top of the lane and found another gear as she straightened away to notch the victory in a sharp 1:49.3 over Blue Moon Stride who held place over L A Delight.

TINTIN IN AMERICA 3YO filly, SHARTIN, took out the Tasmanian Oaks at Elwick on Sunday evening, claiming her first classic after an unlucky run in the NSW Oaks heat. The filly was always in control of the Tasmanian classic, winning by 11 metres.


Trainer, Dean Braun, paid upward of $50,000 for SHARTIN in New Zealand for the high class daughter of five time Group 1 winner, TINTIN IN AMERICA.


She is owned by a syndicate of four including Tasmanian Dean Richards, who wasn’t on track to watch his star filly, as he was overseas on Business,


Trainer Dean Braun has a couple of classic options with SHARTIN - he may head towards the Victorian Oaks next month or even head west for the West Australian Oaks on May 5.


SHARTIN’s sire, TINTIN IN AMERICA now stands at Yirribee Pacing Stud at North Wagga. He will be in high demand with breeders this upcoming season, with this filly now a classic winner, and two-year-old, DIVINE STATE, upsetting all before him in New South Wales.


Australian breeders will have the chance to breed to one of the fastest pacers ever to race Down-under. TINTIN IN AMERICA established New Zealand records from 1609 metres to 2700 metres, won the Breeders Crown as a 3YO and was the Harness Jewels Champion at 3 and 4.
