Cantab Hall fillies dominate in PASS
« Return to News
Fresh off a trio of preps, including a wire-to-wire 2:01.2 qualifier at the Meadowlands, All Star Hanover ($6.80) was in fine form, taking the fastest of six Pennsylvania Sire Stakes divisions for 2-year-old trotting fillies Monday afternoon at Harrah\'s Chester, turning in a 1:59.4 performance.
The daughter of Cantab Hall and Astraea Hanover sat well off leader and 3-5 favorite Favor Baby (Brian Sears) through early fractions of :28.4, 1:00.2, and 1:30 before Dave Miller tipped her to the outside midway on the far turn. At the head of the stretch, All Star Hanover moved on level terms with pocket-sitter Lady B Pearl (Mike Lachance), continuing steadily through a :28.4 final quarter to take the lead in the final strides, defeating Favor Baby by one-half length. Lady B Pearl held third.
Cantab Hall fillies were victorious in three other divisions, with Missy\'s Doubt Fire (Missy\'s Goalfire, 2:00.3, Jimmy Takter), Musical Mystery (Musical Victory, 2:00.4, Mike Lachance), and Perfect Prelude (Missys Go Go, 2:03.4, Trond Smedshammer) winners of their respective splits. Caviar For The Lady (SJ\'s Caviar-Croupier Lady) won in 2:00.4 with Tony Morgan in tow, and Dover Miss (Andover Hall-Miss Athens) took the final division in 2:01.1 to give Lachance a driving double.
