Trot Fudge Sundae
Dave Magee guided Trot Fudge Sundae to her 10th win in 12 career starts as they teamed up to take Sunday's $46,500 Violet Stake at Balmoral Park.
Taking another step towards divisional honors among the Illinois conceived and foaled two-year-old filly trotting set James Bafia, Eugene White and Samuel Daddonos Trot Fudge Sundae cruised to her 10th win in 12 career starts on Sunday night, taking the $46,500 Violet Stake final by two-lengths in 1:58.3 for driver Dave Magee.

Floated away from post position six Magee had the daughter of American Native-What A Joy sitting third on the outside as Powerful Goddess (Mike Cox) sped through an opening quarter in 29.0.

Working her way to the front as the fillies continued their journey down the backstretch Trot Fudge Sundae grabbed control of the proceedings before the half-mile mark, leading the field of nine through middle splits of 59.2 and 1:29.4.

Drawing clear of a heavily favored but first over Little Ms Chrissy (Robert Taylor) and the pocket sitting Powerful Goddess in the lane, the Dirk Simpson-trained miss was never in any real danger as she cruised home in 28.4 to secure the victory. Little Ms Chrissy held on to be the bridesmaid while Powerful Goddess was third.

Sent off as the 8-5 second choice in the wagering, Trot Fudge Sundae returned $5.20, $2.40 and $2.10 while upping her career bankroll to $183,210 for her proud owners.
