World Champion Fancy Filly got up in deep stretch to prevail over pacesetter Put On A Show in the $628,178 Breeders Crown Two-Year-Old Filly Pace Saturday night at Woodbine Racetrack.

Ticket To Rock (John Campbell) secured the early lead and put up a :27.3 opening quarter. From there, Three Diamonds winner Fancy Filly rushed up from third under the guidance of Brian Sears with Put On A Show hot on her heels and angling three-wide to get up for the lead at the :56.2. half. Put On A Show stepped on the accelerator heading to the third interval in 1:24, but that third quarter panel proved to be too much for the leader as Fancy Filly converted from the pocket and was able to push past Put On A Show before hitting the wire in 1:53.4.

Put On A Show stayed for second and Ticket To Rock (John Campbell) rounded out the top three.

"She raced all year long and has always stepped up. It's vacation time for her," commented George Teague, who co-owns the Western Hanover-Fanciful Hanover filly with Theodore Gewertz of New York, New York and Only Money Inc. of Hartly, Delaware. "She’s been awesome all year long, never been anything but impressive."

Fancy Filly has won 10 times and has yet to finish off the board in 12 starts. The lion’s share of the purse pushed her earnings to $840,926. (WEG)
