Bea's Ideal was one of eight winners on Monday for Jason Bartlett.

Bartlett, who didn't miss an assignment, wasted no time. He guided the undefeated Bea's Ideal ($3.50) to an eased-up, 1:56.3 win in the $12,500 pacing opener. The 4-year-old daughter of America Ideal, unraced prior to this season, is 4-for-4 ($25,000) to begin her career for co-owners (trainer) Heidi Rohr, Marc Reynolds and David Glazer.

The lass has been nominated to the upcoming Petticoat Pacing Series, which begins Tuesday afternoon (March 7).

Five of Bartlett's Monday winners were trained by Richard Banca, beginning with Wayne The Lefty ($4) in the $6,500 third race pace (1:55.3). After that, it was Brown Brinny ($6.50) in the $15,000 seventh race pace, Mybrothergeorge ($3) in the $6,500 eighth race pace (1:55.4), OK Heartbeat ($6.20) in the $18,000 ninth race pace (1:55) and A Plus Hanover ($5.10) in the $12,500 pacing finale (1:55.2).

Bartlett's other victories came behind a pair of trotters, Dominus Hanover ($3.20) in the $12,500 second race (1:58.3) and Get To Doin' It ($21) in the $18,000 11th race (1:59.2).

He now has 213 local wins this season.

The Raceway's live season continues with a Tuesday matinee, first post at 1 p.m.
