Chester, PA --- A pair of Steve Elliott-trained 2-year-old pacing fillies were victorious in the Stallion Series events held Wednesday (August 29) afternoon at Harrah's Philadelphia Casino and Racetrack.

Starter Norton Shoemaker dispatched seven $20,000 divisions of the Stallion Series, with Want Answers ($3.00) posting a 1:53.4 victory in the ninth race, scoring in pillar-to-post fashion with Yannick Gingras to give Steve Elliott his first winner of the afternoon.

The Western Terror-Doctor Seth filly had no trouble clearing the lead, rating a :57.1 half before staving off a far-turn challenge from Dragon Ruffles (David Miller) and subsequently holding sway from the pocket-sitting Tiger Boudoir (Brandon Simpson).

Gingras and Elliott teamed up two races later with a daughter of Western Terror-Woman Rebels, Woman Of Terror ($7.80). In similar fashion, she controlled a sensible :57.3 half-mile before holding off the challenge of odds-on favorite Skade (David Miller), sprinting clear to win by 4-3/4 lengths in 1:53.3.

The fastest split of the afternoon, however, belonged to Brian Brown trainee Miss Madi M ($3.00). The Real Artist-Fella's Bella filly stalked a :27.2 first quarter from midfield before clearing to the lead with a circuit to go, never looking back en route to a 1:53.1 win for David Miller.

Two-year-old pacing fillies headline Pennsylvania Sire Stakes action at Harrah's Philadelphia on Thursday (August 30) afternoon, with first post at 12:40 p.m. (EDT).
