21 March 2011 - Locally trained Airzone jetted around Lords Raceway for a stunning record mile on Sunday.
The Longlea trained 3yo stopped the clock at 1:54.2 taking a half second off Summanus' previous best mile. Brilliantly driven by gun young pilot Greg Sugars, Dick Howarth’s electric son of Jet Laag was easily better than hiss rivals on the night winning by more than 21 metres. Raced by Raeleene Howarth Airzone was having its second race start this season and only his fourth lifetime race appearance. The record victory in the Boort Railway Hotel 3yo Pace (1609m) was Airzone's first win. - David Aldred
