Shartin N best in Roses Are Red

Milton, ON — Sent off the 1-5 favorite, Shartin N strolled to the lead and faced little challenge when winning the C$330,000 Roses Are Red final for pacing mares in 1:49 on Saturday night (June 15) at Woodbine Mohawk Park.

Driver Tim Tetrick sent the 6-year-old Tintin In America mare to the top while Caviart Ally sat second into a :25.4 opening quarter. Tequila Monday sat third into the backstretch with Seaswift Joy N stalking fourth before getting flushed first over by Shartin N’s stablemate Bettor Joy N.

Shartin N continued on the front uncontested into a :54.4 half and passed three-quarters in 1:22.2 with Seaswift Joy N not advancing wide of pocket-sitter Caviart Ally. Through the stretch Shartin N kept course and cruised to a 1-1/4 length victory over Tequila Monday who slid through the cones for second with Caviart Ally chasing in third.

“I had a spot where I wanted to go in and get control, and she does the rest,” Tetrick said after the race. “She’s pretty easy to drive now; she’ll let me relax on the lead and she just keeps going until somebody comes up on her; she really likes to fight.”

Now compiling C$1,726,155 in earnings, Shartin N collected her 34th victory. The Jim King Jr. trainee races for owners Richard Poillucci, Jo Ann Looney-King and Tim Tetrick LLC. She paid $2.50 to win.
