Jess Jaccka's New Zealand record and Seabreeze Star winning in 1:54 (one mile) were highlights at today's Wyndham harness meeting.

High temperatures made for fast times on the 1400m speed track at Wyndham's Young Quinn Raceway. The first track record to tumble was in the non-totalizator race for 2-year-old fillies.

Winner Bootie Bromac, trained and driven by Kirk Larsen, paced 1:56.8 (one mile) to set a new fillies' mark. Jess Jaccka's 3:1.9 is the fastest in the coutry by a trotter for 2400m (stand).

She broke Solar Fire's former New Zealand mares' record by 1.9sec. Gold holds the national entires and geldings' record of 3:02.2.

Seabreeze Star came with the last run to win in 1:54 in the hands of Gordon Lee. The former all-comers record at Wyndham was held by Le Sol at 1:54.3, while Nuclear Byrd and Ohoka Texas were joint holders of the Southland record at 1:54.1.
