The top Indiana-sired trotters and pacers will compete Saturday, September 10 for more than $2 million in purses as part of Indiana Downs’ Super Night program. The 14-race card consists of 10 lucrative Indiana Sires Stakes finals and four consolation events. First post is slated for 6:55 p.m.
The $210,000 Indiana Sires Stakes final for freshman filly trotters kicks off the program. Cincinnati Star, a winner in each of three preliminary rounds, leads a group of 10 two year olds set to battle. Trained by Steve Carter, The Cincinnati Kid filly starts from post five. Trace Tetrick, who guided Cincinnati Star to her three ISS scores, will be in the bike. Bar Sue, a two-time winner in stakes action, has drawn the second tier.
Trottin Tiger, a runaway winner in two Indiana Sires Stakes preliminary legs, will be the favorite to capture the $210,000 final for two-year-old colt trotters. Trained by Mark Gillenwater, the Mossy Oak gelding has won his last two starts by a combined 21 lengths, taking his 1:58 mark the last time out. Slotted in post three in the evening’s fourth race, Trottin Tiger will be driven by Sam Widger.
Radar Contact will look to complete a sweep of both Indiana Sires Stakes finals in the night’s seventh race. The Dontgetinmyway three year old started the season with nine straight victories, including a triumph in the $200,000 final for sophomore filly pacers at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino. Trained by Charles Stillings, who owns the filly with Dean Ehrgott, Radar Contact will start from post two in the $210,000 final with Dan Shetler at the controls.

Kerosene, an I Scoot Hanover filly that has won two of three Indiana Sires Stakes starts, lines up in post four while Bonos Lassie, also perfect in three stakes starts, has drawn post eight.
