Two divisions of the New Jersey Sire Stakes for three-year-old filly pacers were held Friday night (June 13) at the Meadowlands. Knock Three Times and David Miller took the second division by a neck over Ideal Nectarine (Andy Miller) in 1:52.2 while Cheyenne Trish and John Campbell moved to the middle of the track halfway down the stretch to win the first division in 1:51.1.
In the first division Cartniverous (Eric Goodell) and Ideal Morning (Ron Pierce) played hopscotch through the :54.4 half, with ValMcTorian (Cat Manzi) sitting third. Cheyenne Trish was still sixth, third over, at the three-quarter pole but halfway down the stretch passed by the field, posting a :27.1 last quarter, to win by two lengths. Chocolate Art (Brian Sears), who gave cover to Cheyenne Trish, came on for second while Good News Lady and Andy Miller held on for third.
Cheyenne Trish won both of her divisions in previous legs of the NJSS and on June 6 took a new lifetime mark of 1:52.1. Robert Siegelman trains the Artiscape sophomore for lessee The Cheyenne Gang LLC of Port Washington, NY. Cheyenne Trish now has over $166,000 in lifetime earnings.
In the second division, Ideal Nectarine took the field to a soft :28 opening quarter with Knock Three Times sitting patiently in third. Going to the three quarters, David Miller pulled the Western Ideal filly first up and steadily wore down McArts N Crafts and Mike Lachance. Ideal Nectarine who had the pocket trip behind McArts N Crafts, held on for second. Erma La Em and Ron Pierce, who got into traffic trouble coming down the stretch, found room late for third.
