Two-year-old fillies were the centerpiece of racing at Indiana Downs Wednesday, July 13. Freshman trotters participated in the first leg of Indiana Sire Stakes competition, while the pacers faced off in Genesis Series action.

Deputy DJ wired the field in the first $8,000 division for trotters, winning in 2:03.1 for driver Mike Hollenback. The Ripken's Victory filly finished nearly six lengths in front of American Babe and Cheriniskarin in the non-betting event. Deputy DJ is owned and trained by Douglas Siefert.

The second division, also a non-betting event, was won by Skip To Express in a time of 2:05.4. Trained by Carol Grubbs and driven by Carrie Hollman, both co-owners, the Elliotts Express lass reached the wire before First Buckaroo and Lovely Challenge.

Four $8,000 Genesis Series divisions were held Wednesday night with GT Miss Royal claiming the first split in 1:59.1. The Pilgrims Punch filly, driven by Don Irvine Jr., put a head in front of Lady Dreamer at the wire.

L-N-A's Dream went off as the race favorite for trainer John Merkel, winning in 1:59.1 with Ricky Macomber in the sulky. The Dream Work freshman finished three-quarters of a length in front of Matt's Keepsake.

Jay Cross took command with Lease On Life filly On With Life after the quarter and never looked back, winning the third split for trainer Byron Hooley in 1:58.1.

In the final division Lifes Likearose upset favorite Cherchez Bluegrass in 1:59.4. Trainer Don Eash guided the Mark Johnathan filly to the victory.
