Beachy Girl, Thong and All Accounted For took the $35,000 Shes A Great Lady Eliminations Saturday at Mohawk.  Beachy Girl now has six wins in six starts after winning her elimination in 1:54.3.


Brian Sears and Beachy Girl got away fifth while Voelz Hanover, who was parked to a :27.4 first quarter, lead the field.  Lola Palooza was flushed out first over going to the half and Beachy Girl came up second over.  Coming off the last turn, the two-year-old Real Desire filly kicked away, going three wide.  See and Be Seen with John Campbell had a late rally to get up for second while Red in the Face and Randy Waples came up the inside to finish third.


Out of a Jennas Beach Boy mare, Beachy Girl is trained by Joe Seekamn and owned by Hal Hewitt of Kentucky along with the Joe Seekman Racing Stable.


“She’s five for five for a reason,” said Brian Sears.  “She’s got a lot of class and every time I called on her, she kept trying.  She got a little tired late but when I called on her again she tried some more.  She’s got some talent; she’s got some ability.  She’s good gaited and she’s got some heart, so what more could you want?”


Thong shaved a fifth of a second off her lifetime mark when she took the second elimination in 1:53.3.  Everyone wanted the front in this elimination as the lead horse changed many times at every call.  Thong got away third while Arts Diva took the early lead.  Then Cartniverous pulled from the pocket to take the lead after which Tim Tetrick pulled Thong and took her to the front.  Then Good News Lady took her shot at the lead and A and Gsconfusion got parked around the last turn.


When John Campbell got A and Gsconfusion to the front, Tetrick was able to pull Thong and just get by to win in 1:53.3.  A and Gsconfusion finished second while Arts Diva and Randy Waples put in a huge late drive to get up for third.


Trained and owned Toby Lynch, Jr. and also owned by Jason Lynch, the two-year-old filly now has three wins in five lifetime starts, including a win in the Eternal Camnation on August 18.


\"I was hoping someone would come cover my mare up,\" said Tim Tetrick.  \"She\'s still green and she doesn\'t know how to do everything yet.  But she\'s very handy, she\'s very push button.  She\'s very deceiving.  In the hole she won\'t even take the bit, the lines are flopping and you can\'t get her to grab the bit.  But when she\'s got clear sailing she starts to surge.  That\'s very good, that\'s taught and Toby\'s done a great job teaching her that.\"
All Accounted For and John Campbell took the third Shes A Great Lady elimination in 1:54.2.  Getting away fifth, the Camluck daughter was three wide around the last turn and pulled a 6-1 upset.  Beyonce Blue Chip (Paul MacDonnell) finished second with Timeless Artist (Brian Sears) finishing third.  Victim of Love (Mark MacDonald), who mad the top after the half, finished fourth.


Trained by Bob McIntosh, All Accounted For is owned by C S X Stables, Paul Ysebaert and the Robert McIntosh Stables, Inc.  She now has two wins in six lifetime starts, of which she has never been worse than third, and took seconds off her previous 1:57.4 lifetime record set at Saratoga.

“Tonight when I tipped her off her cover, she was all business and went a very nice mile,” said Campbell.  “She responded very well.  She doesn’t have much attention when she gets off by herself a little bit but I kept after her and she did the rest.  She’s a green filly, she’s learning every week, she’s going a little faster all the time.  I think she’s going to improve.  Most of Bob McIntosh’s, if you look at his horses, they get better as they go along.”
