YOUNGSTERS STAR IN JUXTAPOSITION SPLITS
In the first division, Jackie Butenschoenís promising young filly Fox Valley Angie had no trouble disposing of five rivals in 1:59.1.
Handled like she was much the best in this field of two-year-olds, Hall of Famer Dave Magee sent the daughter of Sportsmaster-Assailed right to the front from her inside starting spot.
Pacing comfortably through splits of 29.2, 100:3 and 1:30.2 while unchallenged on the front end, the John Butenschoen-trained miss then sealed the deal with a 28.4 final quarter to notch her first career victory. Vegas Date (Travis Seekman) rallied while first over to finish second and Whistle A Tune (Robert Smolin) was third, seven lengths behind the winner.
In the second division John Carverís Lyfslykaboxachoclt continued to impress as she held on gamely for a head decision in 1:59.4.
Intent on calling the shots with this $24,000 yearling purchase, driver Marcus Miller had the daughter of Park Place-Box Car Girl out and rolling as Wiley Temptress led the field through an opening split of 29.0.
Grabbing command of the proceedings as the field entered the stretch for the first time the Ervin Miller-trained miss then went on to rattle off middle splits of 1:00 and 1:30.0.
With the easy fractions under her belt, Lyfslykaboxachoclt managed to hold off a hard charging Rolldownthehiway (Brandon Simpson) despite a slight miscue in the late going. Echoes In My Soul (Todd Warren) wound up a hard-fought third after making a first over bid heading for the half-mile mark.
State bred stakes action continues on Friday night at Maywood with the $40,000 Cook County Stake and the $10,000 Enzo The Baker Stake drawing the attention of some of the Prairie Stateís top older pacers and two-year-old pacing colts sharing the attention on the 14-race program.
