There were five Pennsylvania Stallion Series races for three-year-old filly trotters at Harrah's Philadelphia on Wednesday (June 24), each going for a purse of $20,000.

The fastest of which went to Albert and Michelle Crawford's Sistas (George Napolitano Jr.). The daughter of Andover Hall was able to repel the bid of six-time winner Speak To Me (Scott Zeron) to secure back-to-back wins in a time of 1:54.3. The Chris Oakes trainee now has six wins in 14 career starts, with earnings close to $40,000.

Hauser Brothers and Conrad Zurich's Day Lily (Tim Tetrick) also won her division for Oakes. The daughter of Andover Hall was a gate-to-wire winner in 1:55.

Another daughter of Andover Hall, Lilu Hanover was successful in her division for trainer/driver Jimmy Takter. She was able to quarter-brush to the top and hold off Murderers Row (Tim Tetrick) in the late stages to win by a head in 1:55.2.

Trainer/driver Ake Svanstedt also had two Stallion Series wins on the day. Joe Lozito's Setubal closed sharply to pick up her second win in just four lifetime starts. The daughter of Yankee Glide was six lengths off the lead at three-quarters, before closing in :29.1 to narrowly defeat Seduce A Stranger (George Napolitano Jr.) by a neck in 1:57.1.

Svanstedt's second Stallion Series win came when Top Ten Racing Stable's Scented Roses took advantage of the pocket trip. The daughter of Cantab Hall edged off the pylons to out-close longshot Vanity Blast (Dave Miller) to win by two lengths, stopping the clock in 1:56.4.
