Tintin In America's harness racing champion daughter Shartin NZ is the overwhelming favourite to defend her USA Aged Mare of the Year crown despite being nosed out in the $US175,000 TV Mare Pace in a stakes record 1:48.6 at The Meadowlands on Saturday night (November 23).

Shartin has banked $US982,177 from 15 wins and three seconds from 19 starts this year and took a mark of 1:46 and is clearly the richest and fastest female pacer in North America in 2019.

On the home front, Million Dollar Cam's son Dollarbill, who was bred and raised by Yirribee Pacing Stud, completed a hat trick at Albion Park on Friday (November 22), coming from near last to win in a 1:57.6 rate over 2138 metres. The seven-year-old gelding has already won five races this season and boasts 17 lifetime successes

Million Dollar Cam took the siring honours at Temora on Saturday night (November 23) with a winning double in Taylors Mill, another product of Yirribee Stud, and Chubbs.

Caribbean Blaster was represented by two winners from his first crop on either side of the country last week. Caribbean Jack scored for the sixth time at Young, while Caruba won her third race at Wagin (WA).

Tintin In America, Million Dollar Cam and Caribbean Blaster are standing this season at Yirribee Pacing Stud, Wagga (NSW), alongside the great Lazarus, Lennytheshark, Fear The Dragon and Warrawee Needy.
