Track Record Matched In Shady Daisy
Aug 5

1-5 favourite Blazin Britches won the $113,950 Shady Daisy for 3-year-old pacing fillies on Saturday afternoon at the Meadowlands in 1:48.4, equaling the track record for the division.

Driven by David Miller, Blazin Britches moved from third to get the lead from Idyllic Beach (Yannick Gingras) at the :54.1 half.

She began to open up on the far turn and to the 1:22 three-quarters, and she would continue to pour it on in the lane, winning by about four lengths over Caviart Ally (Andrew McCarthy). Idyllic Beach wound up third.

"We thought she was a really nice filly right along," said trainer Brian Brown. "We had to wait on her last year a couple times. Got started this year, and we were ready to go to the Fan Hanover, but she was popping a gravel. I give credit to her groom Kim and the grooms at Bruce (Trogdon's) farm Emerald Highlands, they got her finally to pop it. It took two weeks, so it took us right out of the Fan Hanover and the Lynch.

"We thought she was a really good horse, but I can't tell you I knew she was this good."

Emerald Highlands Farm also bred the victorious daughter of Rock N Roll Heaven. Winless in one start last year, she has won eight times from nine starts this season and has put away $123,962.
