Monticello, NY --- Tracys Song, North America’s winningest Standardbred, will be shooting for her 14th consecutive victory in the 10th race Monday afternoon (April 29) at Monticello Raceway.

Already a winner of 13 races this year, the 8-year-old pacing daughter of Astreos will again be handled by Bruce Aldrich, Jr. when they leave from the six hole, carrying with her a $9,000 claiming tag.

Last week Tracys Song was an easy 3-1/2 length winner in a 1:57.2 clocking over similar company.

Currently Tracys Song holds the track record for most wins in a row by a mare, but now she’s chasing the track's all-time mark of 15 consecutive victories, set in 2010 by pacer Northern Chief, who was driven by Mike Merton.

“It looks like rain today and this year all of Tracys Song’s wins were over a fast racetrack, so barring anything unforeseen I believe we have a great chance at continuing our win streak and (have) a legitimate shot at the 15 wins in a row,” said trainer Bob Lounsbury.

Tracys Song, a $4,000 purchase earlier this year, is owned by Nancy Fugere.
