ANDERSON -- Somethingbeautiful solidified her divisional dominance in the Hoosier state's 2-year-old pacing filly ranks as she turned in a dazzling 1:52.2 performance to take the co-featured event Wednesday, a split of Indiana Sires Stakes action at Harrah’s Hoosier Park Racing & Casino. With driver LeWayne Miller in the bike, Somethingbeautiful recorded her sixth consecutive victory and remains undefeated this season.
Leaving from the rail, Somethingbeautiful left just enough to grab a pocket seat behind the pace-setting Something To Me and John DeLong through the opening quarter in :27.4. JK She’s Gordjus and Trace Tetrick wanted their turn on the front and got it just before the half in :57.2. JK She’s Gordjus continued to call the shots through the three-quarters in 1:25.2, but Somethingbeautiful was winding up to strike. Using a :26.2 final quarter, Somethingbeautiful was able to track down JK She’s Gordjus and repel a late sure from Something to Me to get the win by a length.
