Blazin Britches has emerged as one of the top fillies in the division as the year has gone on

Blazin Britches lived up to her name in Saturday’s $113,950 Shady Daisy for 3-year-old pacing fillies at the Meadowlands. The Brian Brown trainee stopped the timer in a track record-equaling 1:48 4/5 while winning by open lengths.

Idyllic Beach was fastest off the gate as Blazin Britches settled in the pocket, but Caviart Ally was quickly on the move at the 27-second opening quarter to make the front. The merry-go-round at the top continued,  with Idyllic Beach retaking the lead and a revved up Blazin Britches hot on her heels all before the half in 54 1/5.

Once in charge Blazin Britches never had an anxious moment, rolling by three quarters in 1:22 and cruising through the stretch while well in hand for driver David Miller.  Caviart Ally rallied late for second, 4-3/4 lengths behind the winner. Idyllic Beach was third.

“We thought she was a really good horse, but I can’t tell you I thought she was this good,” said trainer Brian Brown, who added that he had to wait on her a couple of times due to physical ailments.

Blazin Britches ($2.60 to win), a daughter of Rock N Roll Heaven, is owned by Emerald Highland Farm. She improved her career record to eight wins in 10 starts and bumped her earnings over $100,000 with the win.​
