After getting rained out this past Friday morning, two-year-old pacing and trotting fillies resurfaced Monday morning during an 11-race session of qualifiers at Mohawk Racetrack.

Percy Bluechip turned in the quickest mile of the morning when she toured the oval in 1:54.3 for driver Trevor Henry. The daughter of Shadow Play-Advantest went to the front and carved out fractions of :30, :59.1 and 1:27.3 before rocketing home in :27 to win by a half-length margin over the American Ideal-Cannae Cammie filly, Alexis Faith.

Purchased for $110,000 at last year’s Forest City Yearling Sale, the half-sister to Kenneth J (1:49.3 - $1,592,755) and the full-sister to Arthur Blue Chip (1:50.1 - $552,759) is owned by Shadow Two Stable, Hudson Standrdbrd Stb Inc and James & Wilma MacKenzie. She is trained by Dr. Ian Moore, who also campaigned Arthur Blue Chip.

Trainer Paul Reid wrapped up the session by taking the final two qualifiers with Just Her Luck and Kendall Seelster.

Just Her Luck was on top at every call en route to her 21-length score in Qualifier 10. Sylvain Filion put the daughter of Sportswriter-Just Luck on top and together they cruised through panels of :29.3, :58.4 and 1:27.1 before kicking home in :28.4 to post the winning effort.

The homebred is owned by 1187422 Ontario Inc of Gloucester, Ont.

Stablemate Kendall Seelster wrapped up the Monday qualifying session with a 1:57 triumph for Reid and driver Scott Young. The filly was up close early while Lady Everlong took the group through first-half fractions of :30.3 and :59.4. Kendall Seelster commenced a first-over rally past the half, and she took over command while racing parked past the three-quarter pole in 1:28.3. She used a :28.2 closing quarter to win by 1-1/2 lengths over Rendezvous Hanover.

The youngster was purchased for $47,000 from last year’s Forest City Yearling Sale by 1187422 Ontario Inc of Ottawa, Ont. She’s a half-sister to Kokanee Seelster (1:52.3 - $126,336).
