Wilkes-Barre, PA --- Six divisions of 2-year-old pacing fillies went to the post in the second leg of their Pennsylvania Stallion Series competition Monday night (Aug. 6) at The Downs at Mohegan Sun Pocono, with driver David Miller capturing a stakes hat trick.

Miller guided the last three stakes winners of the night, including the only repeat Stallion Series winner and the fastest winner of the night. The point leader in this division right now, is the Somebeachsomewhere-Sarandon Blue Chip filly Margret Hill, who took a new mark of 1:53.3. Despite a 26-day layoff, she brushed to the lead past the three-eighths, and she then showed her gameness in a :28 final quarter, holding off Rock N Mcroll to her outside by a half-length, with Unspoken Promise another neck back in third. Brian Brown conditions the 3-for-3 filly for owner Tom Hill.

The fastest of the Stallion Series winners was the Captaintreacherous-Musicale Hanover filly May Bride Hanover, who froze the timer in 1:52.3 for her first win. May Bride Hanover had shown fast last quarters from off the pace in all her lines before this event, but she was much more involved in the proceedings here: making the lead, yielding, coming out at the five-eighths and dashing by to a 4-1/4 length win. The Nifty Norman-trained freshman filly is owned by the Pinske Stables and David Hoese.

The other winner for David Miller was the Sweet Lou-Ram Rocker distaff Skater Chick, who overcame a first-over trip to grind down favored Sweet Cherry in a :28 last quarter and defeat her by 1-1/4 lengths in a new mark of 1:53.3. Mark Harder trains the winner of two straight for Donald Lindsey, Paul Kleinpaste and Garth Bechtel.

Somebeachsomewhere-Limestone Cowgirl miss A Beach Cowgirl and Corey Callahan went right out to the lead and came home in :28.1 to win by 1-3/4 lengths while taking a maiden-breaking mark of 1:54.3. Trainer Brett Bittle is the co-owner of the winner with E. Dan Bittle, Charles Keller III and Charles Keller IV.

Trillions Hanover, another daughter of Somebeachsomewhere out of the mare Tulu Hanover, yielded to sit a pocket trip to the 10-cent favorite Darn Tootn Hanover, then out-rushed that rival home into a :27.3 last quarter to post a 1-1/4 length upset in a new best of 1:54.1 with Tim Tetrick in the bike. A 1:55 winner against elder stock at Harrah's Philadelphia, Trillions Hanover is trained by Tom Fanning for Fanning Racing LLC, VIP Internet Stable LLC and J L Benson Stables Inc.

Simon Allard lit up the board with 16-1 shot Sweet Sissy Lou, a Sweet Lou-Hard To Desire filly, with whom he sat in the pocket before brushing late to post a 2-3/4 length victory for her first win in 1:55.3. Trainer Steve Salerno is co-owner of the winner with Bruce Potter, Nicholas Tallarico and Tom Vassiliou.
