Hedges Avenue in 1:54.9

 

Hedges Avenue, a five-year-old mare bred, reared and sold by Benstud Standardbreds, earned a new speed badge of 1:54.9 and took her earnings over the $50,000 mark when she won the Country Series heat at Newcastle on Friday night (May 3).

 

It was her sixth win for the season and her ninth lifetime.

 

Hedges Avenue is the fourth foal and third winner of the Presidential Ball mare Presidential Night.
