Fresh off a game wire-to-wire win in her career debut, the Peter Dora-owned and -trained Lyrics Fall made it two-in-a-row after the promising youngster knocked off five other Illinois conceived and foaled two-year-old pacing fillies in the $10,000 Juxtaposition Stake on Thursday night at Maywood Park.

Hustled off the gate from post position four by driver Casey Leonard, the daughter of Yankee Skyscaper-Fall Colors led the field through an opening quarter in :28.3.

After relinquishing the lead to a hard-charging BS Tyrichess (Brian Carpenter) as the field moved by the half in :57.4, Leonard did not wait long before sending his filly back to the front, charging by the three-quarter-mile mark in 1:28.1.

Comfortably in front of their rivals around the final bend and into the stretch, the $1,800 yearling purchased looked like a “million bucks” as she cruised home in 1:57.2 with her second win in as many tries while under no pressure whatsoever. Duneside Splash (Travis Seekman) finished second, while Gracie On My Mind (John De Long) rallied to finish third.

Sent off as the odds-on choice after the win in her debut, Lyrics Fall returned $3.60 while moving her bankroll up to $10,000 for her owner-trainer.
