Im Bruce Almighty lived up to his name with an impressive display at Riverina Paceway.
The three-year-old set a new track record for his age, plus clocked the second fastest mile rate in the new track's history, to end a sequence of placings.
After finishing runner-up in four of his last five starts, he galloped in the other, the David Hewitt-trained gelding wasn't going to settle for second place this time around.
Instead he roared away from his rivals to win by 19.5 metres in a mile rate of 1:52.8.
It was just the third race run under 1:53 at Wagga's new track and half a second off Elle Yeah's track record set in March.
After making a move coming into the home straight on the final occasion, Im Bruce Almighty ($3.20) was forced to do plenty of work to find the front.
But from their he dictated, putting a big gap in his rivals led by Fairy Tinkabell ($10) who was over 10 metres ahead of the rest herself.
Hewitt was impressed with the son of Pet Rock, who he also bred and owns.
"He went super," Hewitt said. "He's fairly strong and ran home really nice for a really good second at Goulburn two runs ago and off his track work he's a nice strong fella who might lack the real high speed but can maintain it for a fair way."
After a restricted win at Canberra in March, Hewitt was pleased the consistent pacer was able to go one better with more prizemoney and two bonuses on the line.
The Goulburn trainer was also impressed with the track.
"It's the first time I've been here, and his first time too, but we work on the bigger track like this and I think it suits him," Hewitt said.
"It's nice to race on tracks like this."
Hewitt won't be waiting as long for his next trip to Wagga with plans to bring Im Bruce Almighty back next week for the heats of the NSW Breeders Challenge.
Riverina Paceway will play host to four heats of the series on Friday.
While there were 10 individual trainers and 10 individual drivers tasting success across the 10-race card Hewitt was a common name among them.
Brother Mark enjoyed success with Loxley bringing up his first win since racing at the Wagga Showground in December.
Son Sam also brought up a win with Muscle Mach taking out the last race.
Turbo Bromac returned to winning ways for the first time since September 2017 for Kim Hillier and Peter McRae while Sokys Falcon didn't have to wait very long to score his first win.
The son of Falcon Seelster won on debut for trainer-driver Bruce Harpley and now heads to the two-year-old colts and geldings Breeders Challenge heat.
