Six divisions of the Stallion Series for two-year-old filly pacers, going for a purse of $20,000 each, headlined the Wednesday afternoon card at Harrah's Philadelphia.

Division 1 went to Icapella Hanover, who closed fast off of cover to spring a 34-1 upset. The daughter of Somebeachsomewhere is owned by Held, Barbera, Pavia, and the AGC Stables, trained by Joe Pavia Jr., and was driven by Ron Pierce. Another longshot, Shark Mate, closed for second, while Miss Katie Q, who had the lead in mid-stretch, weakened to third.

Division 2 was dominated by the speed of the Ross Croghan trainee Filly Buster. The daughter of Well Said was never threatened the entire mile, going on to pace in 1:56.3. She is owned by Let it Ride Stables, RBH Ventures, and Howard Taylor, and was driven by Corey Callahan. McPlay Girl was second, while Vivid Shine rallied well for third.

Division 3 was never in question, as Try N Keep Up took the lead and never looked back. The daughter of Western Terror set pedestrian fractions, and closed home in an effortless :27.3 final quarter. She is owned by Give it a Shot Stables and VIP Internet Stables, trained by John Butenschoen, and was driven by Marcus Miller. TSM Daisy Mae was second, while Dobre Povedane finished third.

Division 4 ended in another major upset, as Hashtag Quick took advantage of breaking horses to wire the field. The daughter of Quik Pulse Mindale was well-rated by driver Brett Miller, and completed the mile in 1:56.3. She is owned by Adams Racing, and is trained by Brewer Adams. My Girl Friend was second, while Scornful Hanover finished third.

Division 5 was won in dominating fashion by Henderson Farm's Fine China. The daughter of Dragon Again sped to the top and made every call a winning one, stopping the clock in 1:55.1, which was a series' fastest for the day. She is trained by Chris Ryder, and was driven by David Miller. Winbak Wiggle fought back for second, while Medoland Jewel finished third.

The sixth and final division was taken in gate-to-wire fashion by Official Belle. The daughter of Art Official was well-rated throughout the mile, and had plenty left in the end, stopping the clock in 1:58.2. She is owned by Anatolia Racing, trained by Roland Mallar, and was driven by Brett Miller. The quickly-closing She Said was second, while Docudrama Hanover finished third.
