Sisters dominate Sunday card at Miami Valley
Lebanon, OH --- Sisters Aqua Artist and Sectionline Yankee won back-to-back races Sunday night at Miami Valley, including the $10,000 Fillies and Mares Open Pace. Trainer Steve Bauder had the siblings super sharp on this night and reinsman Chris Page took full advantage.
Aqua Artist, at age seven two years the senior of Sectionline Yankee (both out of the Cambest mare Aquatic Yankee), beat the top distaffers with a front-stepping 1:55.1 effort. She bested Rev Me Up (Dan Noble) and Holiday Shopper (Jason Brewer) for her 25th career triumph, raising her lifetime bankroll to $306,696.
Sectionline Yankee pushed her total earnings to $246,795 with her 14th win. Her 1:56.3 score over Babe’s Chip (Tyler Smith) and Sonic Breeze (Jim Pantaleano) came in a $7,000 conditioned event.
Owners Harold Lee Bauder, Harold L. Bauder and Michael Dixon also bred both winners.

Steady Pulse led from the start and Charger came from off the pace to win the Sunday twin features at Dover Downs. Tony Morgan and trainer Tim Crissman combined for a driver-trainer triple while Allan Davis and Trace Tetrick also won three races on the card. Crissman Inc.’s Steady Pulse, an altered son of Quick Pulse Mindale-Topless Hall, scooted away from post two to take the lead and then was never headed in a 1:54.1 victory in the first of two $9,500 Delaware paces. Tony Morgan piloted the Tim Crissman trainee to his initial win of the year. The even money favorite held off Pantheon Seelster (Jonathan Roberts) by a neck at the finish with Suits (Jack Parker, Jr.) third. In the other co-feature, Charger went at favorite As Bad As Thunder on the backstretch before edging to the front at the three-quarters on the way to a 1:52.4 decision for Trace Tetrick. Grab The Fortune (Vic Kirby) closed to finish second while Panfully Cool (George Dennis) took the show money.
