The duo was second out on the ground in the round and had to follow on the heels of Sherry Cervi and MP Meter My Hay’s leadoff run of 13.71 seconds. The tandem of Sears and Martha were more than up to the task, touring the pattern in 13.56 seconds to take the win by 15 hundredths of a second over Cervi.

“Martha has just kind of been easing along all week,” Sears said. “I was wondering when she was going to wake up and realize we’re in Vegas, and she did tonight.”

Although the pair had been performing well since their win in the 1st Go round, Sears felt that Martha was a little off her game, so she put in extra work with the mare early in the day, changing her routine in hopes of waking her up.

“She stepped up to the plate tonight,” Sears said. “She felt like Martha has always felt in this pen.

“I was wondering as the week went on if something was wrong, but my vet kept telling me she’s not sore. It was just one of those things where we had to get our mojo together, and we did tonight.”

With the win, Sears cut into the leads of the two most important sets of standings. She is now just $15, 158.71 behind Brittany Pozzi, who leads the World Championship standings with $182,051.72 in 2011 earnings. She also cut into Sherry Cervi’s lead in the NFR Average standings, trimming it to just one tenth of a second.
