Four PASS divisions of the Meadow Bright for three-year-old trotting fillies were the feature races on the 14-race Saturday afternoon card at The Meadows. Each division carried a purse of $42,600 with three prohibitive favorites going down to defeat.

Firedbylindie started off the upsets winning the first division in 1:54, defeating the 1-5 favorite Asiago. The favourite moved to the front past the quarter for Yannick Gingras but was no match for the winner in the stretch, eventually fading to fourth. Matter Of Fact (Mattias Melander) and Magical Beliefs (David Miller) followed the winner home. Driven by Matt Kakaley, Firedbylindie is a daughter of Explosive Matter trained by Ron Burke for Burke Racing Stable LLC, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Phillip Collura. Firedbylindie paid $15.80 to her backers.

Division two saw 3-5 favourite Sonnet Grace make a break in the first turn taking herself out of contention and opening the door for Jazzy Fashion and David Miller to secure the win in 1:54.1. Jazzy Fashion is a daughter of Donato Hanover owned by Fashion Farms LLC of New Hope, Penn. and trained by Jim Campbell. Nomo Volo (Jeff Gregory) finished second with Grimmie Hanover (Dave Palone) rounding out the trifecta.

Fashion Farms and Jim Campbell were not done yet as their undefeated homebred Possess The Will filly Millies Possesion captured the third division of the Meadow Bright.

The only favourite to win a division, Millies Possesion is now three-for-three lifetime capturing her division in a lifetime best 1:54. The winning filly, driven by Dexter Dunn, held off Personal Paradise (Ake Svanstedt) by a neck with Southwind Casha (Dave Palone) finishing third. Millies Possesion paid $2.80 to win.

The fourth and final division saw the 1-2 favorite American Kronos make a break going to the three quarters allowing Antonia to upset the field. The second winner for driver Dexter Dunn and stallion Donato Hanover scored in 1:54.3 over Swizzle Sticks (D. Miller) and Fade Into You (Kakaley). Trained by Nifty Norman, Antonia paid a healthy $28.20 to her backers.

On the undercard were four divisions of the PA Stallion Series for the sophomore diagonal-gaited fillies. Joplin opened the day’s festivities with an upset win n the first race for Christen and Jim Pantaleano stopping the timer in 1:56.2. The second division of the Stallion Series went to Dawn Of Glory for Yannick Gingras and trainer Julie Miller in 1:57.4. Next up was a 1:56.4 win for Keystone Abbey and the team of driver Aaron Merriman and trainer Chris Beaver. Yannick Gingras returned to the winner’s circle in the fourth and final division of the Stallion Series with the Steve LeBlanc-trained Spring In Paris.

The pacing feature of the day was the $18,000 Winners Over Pace won by the hard-hitting seven-year-old gelding Windsong Leo in 1:49.4 for Dave Palone and trainer Ron Burke.

Racing resumes Monday with a 1:05 p.m. first post. The live schedule changes this week with live racing Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and a special Friday night program starting at 5:00 p.m. with the three-year-old colt & gelding trotters back in action in the Currier and Ives Stake.
