In Maryland Sires Stakes preliminary action on an extremely hot night Sunday night (July 1) at Ocean Downs, HS Shauna (Up Front Charlie) with Art Stafford Jr. in the bike, took control of the fractions in the preliminary for 3-year-old pacing fillies.

HS Shauna was able to hold off several challenges from both Cool Toy and Miss Choptank, stopping the clock in a record-setting 1:54.2. Joseph Carroll trains the filly for owner-breeder Cary Grady.

In the preliminary for 3-year-old trotting colts and geldings, driver Brian Burton sent What That Is (Cam’s Rocket) to his favorite spot on the front end. Uncle Ike tried to take over past the quarter but made a break in the turn, quickly recovering to maintain the place position the rest of the mile as What That Is crossed the wire 9-1/2 lengths ahead of the field. Judy Welty trains for owner Brian Emerson, the breeders was Richard Hans. Time for the mile was 1:59.

The Maryland Sire Stake preliminaries continue on Monday (July 2) with the trotting fillies and pacing colts and geldings stepping onto the track at 7:05 p.m.
