Crystal Ball records fastest time

GV Crystal Ball posted the season's fastest time during Monday's harness racing at Bermuda Equestrian Centre.

Eddie Roque's stallion stopped the clock at 1:04 flat competing in the Aged Division of the Best of Three Stakes to better the previous mark held by the same horse by one fifth of a second.

Teenager Kiwon Waldron (Down Home Punch) ran the second fastest time of 1:04/2 in the same division.

The existing track record of 1:01/4 is held by stud, Big Red Machine, that retired at the end of last season.

The Best of Three Stakes series is comprised of six heats with the top four horses in the Three and Four Year-Old and Aged Divisions in the points standings advancing to a seventh and eighth championship race.

Only the top four horses in each heat are awarded points.

Provisional results showed The Reel Machine leading the Three and Four Year-Old series by a single point while Cherokee Kibbitz and GV Crystal Ball are currently tied atop the Aged Division.

The standings have yet to be made official pending the outcome of an appeal from race 15.

Meanwhile, Arthur Hurst was among the day's multiple heat winners, winning two heats in two separate time bars with two different ponies during regular racing that preceded the Best of Three Stakes.

The seasoned driver won heat one in the 1:10/4-1:12/4 time bar with Colonel's J and also savoured victory in the 1:08/3-1:10/3 time bar with Bustin Drum.

Chad Sutherland (Don't Skipa Beat) posted two wins in the 1:13 & Slower division while Kirista Rabain (Nite Dreamer) and Shaun Sealey (Kate's Little Lady) achieved two wins in the 1:05-1:06 and 1:10/4-1:12/4 time bars.

Courtney Davis also posted two wins with The Reel Machine competing in the Three and Four Year Old Best of Three Stakes.

Speed demon: Eddie Roque and GV Crystal Ball clocked the season's fastest time (1:04) at Vesey Street earlier this week
