GUESS WHOS BACK AND MISSION BRIEF CAPTURE NJSS 2YO TROT FINALS

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ July 12, 2014 Guess Whos Back fired off cover while Mission Brief exploded with a gate-to-wire stakes record performance in $100,000 finals of the New Jersey Sire Stakes for two-year-old trotters on Saturday, July 12, 2014 at the Meadowlands.

Mission Brief [$2.60, $2.40, $2.10] broke her own stakes record of 1:55.1, with a 1:53.3 mile in the second race, besting a field of six other trotting fillies, by a winning margin of 13 and a quarter lengths.


Mission Brief


The outcome was never in doubt as Yannick Gingras guided the Ron Burke trainee to her second win in three starts.

With the daughter of Muscle Hill, out of the Breeders Crown winner Southwind Serena, racing on an uncontested lead, the battle was for second and Dynamite Dame by Muscles Yankee edged out Rules of the Road by Muscle Hill, who was third by 14 lengths.

A $150,000 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale purchase, Mission Brief lifted her earnings to $69,750 for the Burke Racing Stable, Our Horse Cents Stables, J&T Silva Stables and Weaver Bruscemi.

Guess Whos Back came from off the pace and tipped five-wide in the stretch and pulled away to a one-length victory in the event for two-year-old trotting colts and geldings, the first race.


Guess Whos Back


Brian Sears positioned the son of Muscles Yankee-Shes Gone Again third over on the backstretch and tipped him five-wide in mid-homestretch to catch 8-5 favorite French Laundry.

Guess Whos Back, who paid $6.40, $4.00, $3.00, was a one-length winner over 3-1 Canepa Hanover with 99-1 Mountain Top a length and three-quarters in third. Both are by Muscle Hill.

The 1:56.1 mile was a lifetime best for Guess Whos Back, trained by Nikolas Drennan and racing for Joseph Davino of Clarksburg, NJ and Brad Shackman of Calgary, Alberta. The $90,000 Harrisburg Sale purchase now has a bankroll of $70,250.
