Sarnia Record Fit For A "Queen"
Queen Of Royalty showed no mercy to the eight foes she squared off with in an $8,000 conditioned event at Hiawatha Horse Park, and the clocking was good enough to earn her a spot in the oval’s record book.
Deliteful Dolphin’s 1:52.2 track in the older pacing mare category went up in a puff of smoke when Marc St. Louis guided Queen Of Royalty to a jaw-dropping effort clocked in 1:51.2.
The seven-year-old daughter of Albert Albert ripped through fractions of :26.4, :55.4 and 1:23 before uncorking a :28.2 closing panel en route to the track record-setting and lifetime-best performance. She drew clear to win by five lengths over Artcam, with third prize going to Jusluky Bobbi J.
Sent off as the 6-5 favourite, the distaffer won for the second time this season and for the 35th time in her career. Allen Sisco Stable LLC of Bad Axe, MI owns the winner of $302,578.
