It was a Friday night dedicated to pacing fillies at Century Mile, as the oval hosted a set of ABSS Stardust divisions for two-year-olds and the rich final of the ABSS Marquis for three-year-olds.

After winning last week’s elimination of the ABSS Marquis with the greatest of ease, Rockin Mystery returned to Century Mile and produced a comfortable triumph when the big money was on the line in the final.

David Kelly hustled the Chris Lancaster trainee to the lead from Post 6, and after slicing out fractions of :28.1, :57.3 and 1:24.4 she used a :29.3 closing quarter to win by a pair of lengths over Outlawspotliteonme in 1:54.2. Cayley Skye rounded out the top three finishers in the $44,500 affair.

The daughter of Mystery Chase-Cant Stop Rockin, who was a $16,000 purchase from the 2017 ASHA Yearling Sale, has now earned in excess of $200,000 for partners Rod Therres and Blair Miller. The victory was her seventh of the season, and the 11th of her career.

Snow Shark captured her $24,900 division of the ABSS Stardust in 1:56.2 for owner/trainer/driver Keith Clark of Foothills, AB.

Clark got away fourth with the youngster while Wrangler Gold led the field through first-half fractions of :30 and :59.4. Wrangler Gold was still in charge at the three-quarter pole in 1:28.2, but Clark was on the move from first over with Snow Stark. Clark’s charge then used a :27.4 closing panel to win by three lengths over Annasfeatherfoot. Wrangler Gold faded late and settled for third.

Sent off as the 2-5 favourite, the homebred daughter of Custard The Dragon-Shark Fest now boasts a formidable, freshman record to 3-2-1 from six starts in addition to a bankroll that stands at $38,152.

Blue Star Dreaming also used rallying skills to win the $25,200 second division in a time of 1:55.3 for driver Michael Hennessy and trainer Rod Hennessy.

The 4-5 favourite got away fourth while L A Woman shot to the front and supplied a first quarter clocked in :28.4. Treasure Horizon was parked and pressing the leader, and she eventually worked her way to the lead. She hit the half in :57.1 before coming under attack by L A Woman. Not much separated the two of them at the three-quarter pole in 1:26.3.

Blue Star Dreaming was also on the move at that point, and she wound up using a :28.4 closing kick to post the win by three-quarters of a length over Miss Itunes. L A Woman wound up settling for third prize.

Rod Hennessy shares ownership on the daughter of Blue Burner-Movin Uptown with Lorne Duffield of Edmonton, AB. Together, they’ve watched the filly manufacture a 3-1-1 record from just six assignments. With the win Blue Star Dreaming pushed her lifetime earnings to $39,225.
