Armbro Dancer won a division of the $95,800 Keystone Classic for Pennsylvania-bred 2-year-old filly pacers Thursday night at The Meadows, shattering the stakes record with a 1:53 effort. The time was two-fifths of a second faster than the previous mark set by Kikikatie in 2003.

Driven by Doug Snyder, Armbro Dancer won by five lengths over She's Game, with Pan Roll-On third. Trained by Alan Sacco, the daughter of Blissfull Hall increased her earnings to $112,500. After the race Sacco expressed concerns over Armbro Dancer's health.

"If we find there's a problem when Monday morning comes, then forget it," Sacco said of a possible hock injury. "But if she stays OK, we'll go to the Matron (where she will have to be supplemented."

Three Men Dreamin won the other Keystone Classic division for driver Mike Wilder in 1:56.2. Princess Character was second with Panama Canal third.

Joe Seekman, who trains and co-owns Princess Character with L&L DeVisser LLC and Steel A Mile LLC, said plans for the daughter of Real Artist are uncertain.

"She's eligible to the Matron," Seekman said. "I'll consult with the other owners on that. She's a big filly, and this may be it for her for the year."
