Published: July 15, 2021 07:29 am EDT

Three $45,500 Indiana Sires Stakes divisions for two-year-old trotting fillies were the featured attractions at Harrah’s Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Wednesday (July 14).

Fleurie and Mike Oosting were the first to find the winner’s circle in the opening division. The Melanie Wrenn trainee saved her best for last and trotted strongly to the finish line, winning by nearly two lengths in 1:56.1. Fleurie established a new lifetime best with the victory and is now two-for-two in her young career. The homebred daughter of Muscle Massive and Renees Pockets is owned by M T Pockets Stables. Fleurie has now earned $27,750.

In the second division, M Ms Dream turned her first lifetime start into a 1:57.1 gate-to-wire victory. With Sam Widger in the bike, M Ms Dream went to the front and never looked back while being challenged throughout the mile. She used a :27.4 closing kick to hold off R Desirable Lady and win by two lengths.

Henry Graber trains M Ms Dream, a Mervin Miller-bred daughter of Swan For All and Trading Places who has now earned $22,750, for Eleven Star Stable and Frank Baldachino.

In the final stakes division, Flipflopsncroptops and Trace Tetrick followed suit and went gate-to-wire in 1:58.1. Sent off at even money, Flipflopsncroptops left alertly from post seven before using a :28.3 final panel to score her maiden-breaking victory by three lengths over Sunafterthestorm.

Flipflopsncroptops, a Swan For All—Sweet Summer filly bred by Kentuckiana Farms and trained by Erv Miller, has now earned $23,430 lifetime for Kentuckiana Racing Stable, S&R Racing Stables and George Golemes.

Indiana Sires Stakes will continue at Harrah’s Hoosier Park on Thursday (July 15) with two divisions of two-year-old pacing fillies. For more information on live racing at Harrah’s Hoosier Park, visit
