    Bettor Isolate is going to win some races. His last 400m at Melton tonight will make interesting reading.

    Last 400m (where he personally covered 408m) in 25.38 seconds. However if you do the maths, take the average speed for 408m and convert for 400m its an equivalent of 24.88 seconds for 400m speed. That is faaaaaast!

    Horses shouldn’t be able to do what he did around the small, triangular Redcliffe track.

    Leap To Fame sat last in the big field, came three-wide from the 900m,was shoved four-wide at the 350m and still cleared out to win by almost six metres, seemingly without being fully extended by trainer-driver Grant Dixon.

    “He’s the best horse in the world right now,” Gangle said.

    Not many people are better qualified to make such a big call given Gangle’s expertise on North American and Australasian harness racing.

    Leap To Fame’s 1min53.4sec mile rate for 2280m smashed the track record set last year by Manila Playboy at 1min55.8sec,

    We knew Leap to Fame was something special but, after watching his performance last night, he is clearly the bet pacer in the Southern Hemisphere and a true superstar.

    Harness racing authorities need to cash in on him with a publicity blitz.

    The only thing is he should have been declared a non-runner. Does he win the race if he was in position at start?

    NOT
    R10 would have to be one of the slowest pacing races run at Shep for some time
    2.04.8 for 2190m

    It was nearly slower than the Standing Start Trot!

    Last season you had to break 1.50 to be in Top 20 Chronicles by fastest time.

    Just over a decade ago 1.52 got you in.

    20 years ago you didn't even need to break 1.56 got you in.

    The Big Boss's MR of 1.54.8 at Echuca tonight was the fastest MR of the night by 2.2 seconds - not bad for a 2yo

    I know there is only a couple of weeks of the season to go but
    1.54.6 at Shep for a 3yo is very serious time (Tk Rec 1.51.9)

    4yo Oorah having only his 4th start absolutely blitzed them in R1 at Terang tonight
    His time of 1.53.1 was only 0.5 seconds off Honolua Bay's Tk Rec
    Sensational
