Bre X sets track record

Bre X, a six-year-old gelding by Dal Reo Hop Sing out of Punch Line, set the Fraser Downs track record Friday.


Lo Siento set the early fractions (27.1, 57, 1:25.3) with Bre X as far back as fifth after the quarter. He was first up, moving to fourth at the half and three quarter marks, and then under strong urging from driver Bill Davis, covered the last quarter in 27.2 to win by six lengths.


The mile clocking was 1:53.3, knocking 1/5 second off the former mark shared by Scruffy Ben, Hot Steam, Red Star Admiral and Nazko Promise.


Haras Colta Cola (Armbro Operative-Celes Lady) was second and Pee Tee O (Scruffy Hanover-Barbies Best) third.


Bre X, who is owned by Kadence Stables of Coquitlam and Tante Stables of New Westminster and trained by Wayne Isbister, now has 11 wins in 23 starts in 2003. He has earned more than $78,000 in 2003 and $274,566 lifetime.
