Scarborough, ME --- The 2-year-old filly pacing division of the Maine Sire Stakes program came to Scarborough Downs for the first time this season on Thursday (July 17) following three consecutive starts at Bangor Raceway. While the location was different, the results remained the same with the top three finishers this week precisely mirroring their placing in the last.

Analyze made it look easy as she grabbed her second straight score, racing first up into valid fractions before grabbing the lead and being hand-driven to the wire by owner/trainer Mike Graffam. The daughter of Neutralize-Analytical, owned by the trio of William Arnold, P. Richard Shaw, and Michael Graffam, claimed the lion’s share of the rich $10,343 purse. Time for the mile was 2:00.1. Cat Has A Kitten (Kevin Switzer) was second, with Eat Your Enemy (John Nason) third.

In other news, driver Drew Campbell continued to hold the hot hand on Thursday, claiming victory in four of the eight races programmed.

Stakes action returns to The Downs on Friday (July 18) with the 3-year-old trotting divisions taking center stage. Post time is 4:30 p.m.
