Blackberry Hanover followed up her victory in the Bluegrass last week with a dominating 1:57.4 victory under chilly conditions Wednesday night (Oct. 1) at The Red Mile in a $69,000 division of the International Stallion Stakes for 2-year-old trotting fillies. David Miller drove the daughter of Donerail to her second victory in five career starts.

Missive Hanover, also off a Bluegrass victory, scored in another division for driver Jim Doherty and owner-trainer Tom Gonsalves in 1:57.1. Myolin, owned by Armstrong Bros., hung on in the stretch against Housethatruthbuilt to win in 1:58.2 in her split.

Lindy’s Fireball, a daughter of Lindy Lane, dug in to win her division in 1:58.3 despite trainer and co-owner Trond Smedshammer admitting that the filly is a little off. “If she was completely sound,” he said, “she would be great.”

Band Of Emeralds, a Jate Lobell filly, drew away in the stretch after taking the lead at the half to win the $111,000 Kentucky Sire Stakes final for 2-year-old pacing fillies in 1:54.4. Miller drove for trainer Richard DiMezza and Band of Brothers Stable.

GV’s Cam Can (Cambest) and Terri Hall (Blissfull Hall) were second and third, respectively. Morning line favorite Ravishing Lady, who won her elim, was scratched sick.
