Planet Rock lowered the track record for 2-year-old pacing fillies with her 1:55 score.
The daughter of Rock N Roll Heaven–Villa Hanover filly wasted no time leaving from post position 4, in the 5 horse field to show the field through fractions of 28.2, 58:0, 1:27:1 to win well in hand in 1:55, pacing her last quarter in 27.4, setting a new track record for 2-year-old pacing fillies.

Breaking the previous record of 1:55.2 set by Freetime in 2012, Planet Rock remained flawless, with 6 wins in as many starts with lifetime earnings of $123,000.

The combination of Toscano/Tetrick swept both ends of the early daily double, the second race was the first split of the Excelsior A series. Tim Tetrick went down the road with Yourlipstogodsears (Art Major-Role Reversal) score in 1:57.3 for owners South Street Farm & George & Theresa Rath.

The Jacobs/Toscano/Tetrick combo struck again with yet another impressive filly, Robin J, the daughter of Roll With Joe–Mommy Robin Q, was stellar as she scored wire to wire in 1:56.2 by 3 lengths. The filly now sports a bank roll of $158,000 thus far in her brilliant freshman career. The win gave Tim Tetrick a hat trick for the day.
