A pair of $105,000 divisions of the Kentucky Stallion Management for 2-year-old filly trotters were contested Wednesday at Indiana Downs. The first split went to Win Missy B in 1:56.1 and the second went to Chilitodayhotamale in 1:56.3.
Charlie Norris trains and drives Win Missy B for breeder-owner Bob Key. The daughter of Conway Hall won for the third time in six starts as she lowered her previous career mark by one-fifth of a second. Aunt Mel and Marcus Miller finished second with Canadian Justice and Peter Wrenn third.
Chilitodayhotamale rallied in deep stretch for driver Brian Sears to edge the Brett Miller-driven Dream On Hanover, with Personal Style and Jody Jamieson third. The complexion of the race changed several times as breakers were scattered throughout, but in the end it was Chilitodayhotamale who reached the winner's circle for the first time in four attempts.
Although she was nary a winner in her brief career, the Trond Smedshammer trainee was coming off a second-place finish in the $175,000 New Jersey Sire Stakes final July 16 at the Meadowlands. This was the first appearance since that race for the daughter of Muscles Yankee bred and owned by Michael Andrew.
