Lifetime Pursuit joins Passionate Glide, Lookout Victory and Marita's Victory as the fourth Brittany-bred filly to win the sport’s most prestigious event for distaff trotters, the Hambletonian Oaks. In winning the 2014 edition of the classic, she established a world record of 1:50.4 and defeated her highly regarded stablemate, Shake It Cerry.

She started her career winning five of her first six starts, with a second-place finish in that run coming in the $321,700 Merrie Annabelle Final. She ended her freshman season with more than $270,000 in earnings and a promise of bigger and better things to come.

As a 3-year-old she added almost $800,000 more to her account, thanks in part to her impressive score in the Hambletonian Oaks. She proved her versatility over all-sized tracks that season, as she established world records over mile and 5/8-mile tracks, and a national season’s record on a half, with those marks being taken winning the Oaks, Pennsylvania Sire Stakes, and Buckette.

Her first foal, a colt by Muscle Hill, sold for $215,000 from the Brittany Farms consignment at the 2017 Lexington Selected Sale.
