Hedges Avenue wins in 1:56.1

 

Five-year-old Hedges Avenue, who was bred, raised at sold by Benstud Standardbreds, earned a new speed badge of 1:56.1 when she outsprinted her opposition at Albion Park on Saturday night (March 9).

 

Starting from the back row, the mare enjoyed a saloon passage before being switched down to the passing lane. She finished resolutely to score by 1.1 metres.

 

It was her eighth win and boosted her stake tally to $48,697.

 

Hedges Avenue is the fastest and richest progeny of Presidential Night, a winning Presidential Ball mare.
