Bridges has best day of his career

Lucas Bridges enjoyed some of the finest moments of his career at the Bermuda Equestrian Centre last Friday night.

The harness driver claimed four heat victories with two different ponies from Inwood Stables to stand out among the crowd.

Bridges swept both heats in the 1:06/1 — 1:07/1 time bar with stallion Colonel's Maestro.

He then capped an already fantastic night by claiming two further victories in the Free for All with gelding, Brona's Mike.

Bridges was one of three drivers managing multiple heat victories, the others being Candyce Martins and Philip Correia, who posted the night's fastest time of 1:04/4 with Full Throttle Racing's mare Pocket de Gold, which was one-fifth off the season's fastest time to date.

GV Crystal Ball achieved the season's fastest time on the previous race day after posting a 1:04/3 competing in the Aged Ponies division of the Best-of-Three Series with female driver Andrea Westerfield in the sulky. It is the second time that Edward Roque's 13-year-old stallion has posted the fastest time at Vesey Street.

Friday night's racing proved highly successful for Inwood Stables, whose ponies claimed six victories in all.

Advancing from the 1:07/2 — 1:09/2 was Simsfield Stables's stallion, Simsfield Hardtimes, while Jason and Ashley Peniston's mare, JustWatchMe, got a leg out of the same division to cap a superb debut at the racetrack.

Pocket de Gold got a leg out of the 1:05 — 1:06 time bar, while getting a leg out of the 1:09/3 — 1:10/3 division was filly, Reel Patrol.

The next race day is Saturday, December 5, with post time at 6pm.
