Anderson, IN --- Youaremycandygirl, the heavy 2-5 public choice off a strong elimination score last week, won the $600,000 Breeders Crown 2-year-old filly pace by 4-1/2 lengths at Hoosier Park Friday night (Oct. 27). The time for the mile was 1:53.2 over a sloppy track. Yannick Gingras drove the filly for trainer Ron Burke.

Youaremycandygirl (American Ideal-Sweet Lady Jane) was in total control from start to finish.

She cut the first quarter in :27.1, passing a quick-leaving Rainbow Room, who sat second through a :56.3 half and three-quarters in 1:25.2.

Around the last turn, Youaremycandygirl drew clear of a quick-closing Majorsspeciallady, who paced past Rainbow Room to get second. Firestorm came late for fourth.

Birnam Wood Farms bred Youaremycandygirl for owner W.J. Donovan.

She paid $2.80 to win.
