g>Dresden, ON — Three heavy favorites were beaten Monday (July 1) at Dresden Raceway in Ontario Sires Stakes action for 3-year–old trotting fillies.

Splurge On Me was the only morning-line favorite to visit the winner’s circle in the first division of sophomore trotters as she cruised to victory for driver Trevor Henry, setting fractions of :30.4, 1:03.2 and 1:35.2 for a mile time of 2:03.2. The 3-year-old Kadabra filly has pushed her earnings to over $70,000 for trainer and co-owner Bob McIntosh Stables and CSX Stables.

Magically Hip cashed in on an early break by favorite Justice Society and went wire-to-wire for the win in the second OSS division for trainer-driver Paul Walker. The Angus Hall daughter cut fractions of :28.4, 1:00.1 and 1:31.4 before finishing the mile in 2:01.3 for Oaklea Farms.


Favorite Class Angel broke stride leaving, which opened the door for Checkmate Titan and trainer-driver Per Henriksen to get to the front and hold off all comers in fractions of :30.1, 1:01.1, 1:30.4 and 2:00.3. The E L Titan filly is owned by Harbour Racing Stable and Asa Farm.

The fourth division of Ontario-sired fillies saw P L Molly and driver-trainer Matt Dupuis time it perfectly to nip Witches N Angels at the wire. Giving It All and Tyler Borth set fractions of 29.3, 1:00.2 and 1:32.2 with Witches N Angels in the two-hole. Witches N Angels pulled out for the stretch drive, but P L Molly stormed up to win in 2:01.4. The Royalty For Life filly is owned by Prince Lee Acres.

The second leg of the Mark Austin Pacing Series has things set up for an exciting final next week, as Premier Rockstar and Ryan Holiday used a two-hole trip to nip Toxic Hanover in 1:58. The 3-year-old A Rocknroll Dance gelding is owned by Premier and Associates and trained by Robert Young.

The second division saw Nagle and driver-trainer Keith Jones cruise to a 1:58.2 victory for Joy Simmons. The 3-year-old Dali gelding will be a force to be reckoned with for next week’s final.
