Hambo Heat Winner Breaks Maiden In PaSS
Aug 10

Rookie trotting fillies with Ontario ownership captured two of the three divisions of Pennsylvania Sire Stakes races today at Harrah's Philadelphia, each going for a purse of roughly $54,000.

In the second division, Nifty Norman trainee Live Laugh Love (Dave Miller) completed a long, persistent grind to break her maiden. The daughter of Donato Hanover - Shes Gone Again engaged leader (and favourite) Follow Streak (Andy Miller) at the 5/8ths marker, clearing just over 1/8th of a mile remaining.

Live Laugh Love held off a rallying Bills Lady (Tim Tetrick) to win by a length in 1:55. Follow Streak held third. Live Laugh Love is owned by breeders Mel Hartman of Ottawa, Ontario and Diamond Creek Racing of Kentucky along with David McDuffee of Florida.

A half-sister to Hambletonian heat winner Enterprise ($232,000), she is the third foal from a full sister to Poof Shes Gone ($1.3 million), also owned by Hartman and McDuffee.

The third division saw Chris Beaver trainee Zoe Bi (George Napolitano Jr.) use the passing lane to her advantage. The daughter of Donato Hanover - Octavia Bi drafted in behind the speed of the favourite Seviyorum (Andy Miller) to pick up the victory in 1:56.

It was a lifetime mark in her fourth career victory in five starts. Zoe Bi out closed the Jimmy Takter driven Basquiat in the final strides, while Hey Blondie (Andy McCarthy) rallied for third.

Zoe Bi is owned by Synerco Ventures Inc. of Toronto, Ontario, and Marion Beachy and Beaver of Ohio.

In the first division, it was S M S Princess (Ake Svanstedt) picking up her first career win. The daughter of Cantab Hall - Won An Done was given a ground-saving steer the majority of the mile, as Julie Miller trainee Strawberry Hanover set a deliberate tempo (:28.4 / :56.2 / 1:25).

S M S Hanover angled out after clearing past the three-quarter poll to split rivals for the win. Megadolce (Dave Miller) closed well for second, while Strawberry Hanover (Andy Miller) was third. S M S Princess is owned by Svanstedt and Stall Musse Inc.
