My New Dawn
My New Dawn (#2) was up in the final strides to win a thrilling three-horse photo in Tuesday's $5,000 Egyptian Grande Stake at Balmoral Park.
After a dynamite performance by a state-bred freshman pacing colt here on Sunday night it was the girls turn to shine on Tuesday night as a field six Illinois conceived and foaled two-year-old fillies went toe to toe in the $5,000 Egyptian Grande Stake.

Although the final time of 2:00.1 was nowhere near as fast as Sunday’s national season's best, the finish was just as thrilling as Virginia Budz' My New Dawn prevailed in an exciting three-horse blanket finish.

Taking advantage of an inside post and a perfect drive by Tyler Buter, the daughter of Cole Muffler-Sunnie’s Lady was able to sit in the pocket as Echoes In My Soul (Todd Warren) strolled through splits of 30.2, 1:01.3 and 1:32.4.

Patiently waiting for room in the passing lane, Buter maneuvered his filly to the inside where she kicked it in to another gear. Gradually cutting into the leader's margin My New Dawn was able to collar the pace setter, sticking a nose in front in the final strides. Echo In My Soul turned in a game effort to finish second while a hard charging Mystic Major (Dale Hiteman) used a 26.2 final quarter to finish third just a head behind the winner.

Fresh off a winning qualifier over the Balmoral oval, the Monique Bernardi trained miss caught plenty of support at the betting windows returning $5.40, $3.40 and $2.60.
