GUESS WHOS BACK & MISSION BRIEF WIN NJSS FOR 2YO TROTTERS

MANALAPAN, NJ – July 4, 2014 -- Guess Whos Back benefited from a quarter-mile duel between Stonebridge Force and Canepa Hanover to win the $40,500 second round New Jersey Sire Stakes for two-year-old trotting colts and geldings on Friday, July 4, 2014 in the second race at the Meadowlands.

In the $39,500 filly division, the fourth race, Mission Brief trotted a stakes record 1:55.1.

In the colts’ race, Stonebridge Force [Muscle Hill] and driver Ake Svanstedt would not relinquish the lead and the rail to 1-5 favorite Canepa Hanover [Muscle Hill] as the two battled down the backstretch. Early in the turn for home Canepa Hanover broke stride, leaving Stonebridge Force on a clear lead until Brian Sears, who won both ends of the early daily double, sent Guess Whos Back sprinting in the stretch.

The son of Muscles Yankee – Shes Gone Again took the lead in the final eighth and clocked a career best 1:57 flat, last quarter in 29 seconds, winning by a length and a half over Stonebridge Force. Guess Whos Back returned $12.60 to win.

Falk On Hill [Muscle Hill], entrymate to Canepa Hanover, saved the bridge-jumpers, finishing third by eight and three-quarter lengths.

Guess Whos Back, a $90,000 Harrisburg Sale purchase, was making his second career start, having broken stride in last week’s opening leg of the New Jersey Sire Stakes. The Nikolas Drennan trainee picked up the winner’s share of $20,250 for owners Joseph Davino of Clarksburg, NJ and Brad Shackman of Calgary, Alberta. He was bred by Diamond Creek Farm of Kentucky and Melvin Hartman of Ontario.

Mission Brief, who broke stride early in last week’s first leg, was carefully timed to the starting gate by driver Yannick Gingras and had the lead from first call to the finish line.

The 3-5 favorite Saturday Mornings was second by nine and three-quarter lengths. It was 12 and a half lengths to Demons N Diamonds in third. All three top finishers are daughters of Muscles Hill.

Mission Brief clicked off fractions of 27.3, 56.2 and 125.1 before stopping the clock at 1:55.1, eclipsing the stakes record of 1:55.3 shared by Act of Grace [1995] and Southwind Cocoa [2012].

The Ron Burke trainee, out of the Breeders Crown winner Southwind Serena, paid $7.20 to win. It was the filly’s first win in two starts, earning $19,750 for the partnership of Burke Racing Stable of Fredericktown, PA; Our Horse Cents Stables of Clifton Park, NY; J&T Silva Stables of Long Beach, NY and Weaver Bruscemi of Canonsburg, PA. The $150,000 Lexington Selected Sale purchase was bred by Steve Stewart of Kentucky, Black Creek Farm of Indiana and Andrea Lea Racing Stables of Quebec.

A quartet of $100,000 New Jersey Sire Stakes Finals for two-year-olds is scheduled for Saturday, July 12, 2014, sharing the card with the finals of the Meadowlands Pace, Mistletoe Shalee, Stanley Dancer, Del Miller, William R. Haughton and Golden Girls.
