Daughters of the sire Dream Vacation swept all three New Jersey Sire Stakes divisions for 3-year-old filly trotters Wednesday night at the Meadowlands, with the winners Victoria Volo (1:56.4), Flash Lightning (1:56) and Granny Gui (1:57.1).
Victoria Volo and driver John Campbell made a three-wide move in the stretch and closed fastest of all to nip the pacesetter, Maryanne K, at the wire. Victoria Volo has won nine of 12 career starts for trainer Jim Campbell and owners Linda and Lee DeVisser of Holland, Mich.
Flash Lightning cruised to a win in the third race division with Daniel Dube at the lines. Sent off the 6-5 favorite, Flash Lightning picked up her first win in three starts this season for trainer Tony Mannino and the Lightning Stable.
In the final division, race six, Granny Gui held off Wishful Me by a head. Driven by Mike Lachance, Granny Gui recorded her first win in three starts this year for trainer Sam Fava and the Sophia Stable. (Meadowlands press release)
