26 January 2011 - Glenn Comensoli-trained four-year-old Summanus posted a new track record time at Bendigo’s Lords Raceway on Australia Day shaving 2/10ths of a second off the previous best mile set by Ransom Olds at this month's Bendigo Pacing Cup meeting.Driven by David Moran the Jet Laag gelding clocked a 1:54.7 mile to win the Ultra Pour-On Pace on his home track. Junortoun-based Comensoli trains at Lords Raceway and he was excited by Summanus’ brilliant performance. “He (David Moran) didn’t even need to pull the plugs (ear plugs) he did it easy,” Comensoli said. It was Summanus’ first victory since November and easily his best winning time with his previous best mile paced in 1:57.8. Moran was trapped wide on the grey early and raced three wide with cover for the first lap. At the bell he moved forward to race outside the leader Three Card Brag (Nathan Cahir) who had been carting the field through a 58.5 first half mile. Moran kept a good hold on Summanus until the final quarter, covering the third split in 28.9, then surged forward to spear clear around the final bend and finishing in high cruise speed mode with the $1.60 favourite covering the final quarter in 27.1. Three Card Brag ($5.40) was 11 metres away in second place with Gyro Spirit ($7.60 -Daryl Douglas) beaten 16.7 metres in third place. It was Moran's first drive on Summanus but after the race Comensoli promised him more. “Wherever he goes if you’re available, you can have the drive,” Comensoli told Moran. Summanus is raced by Troy Comensoli and has now won 10 races from 37 starts.
