There were three divisions of Pennsylvania Sire Stakes races for two-year-old filly pacers on Thursday afternoon (July 21) at Harrah's Philadelphia, each going for a purse of just over $61,000.

In the first division, it was Dylan Davis trainee Gigi From Fiji (Corey Callahan) picking up the win. The daughter of Ponder drafted patiently in the three hole before launching her bid. She hooked up in a stretch duel with Somesleazetoplease (Brett Miller), and was able to get the nose in front, stopping the clock in 1:54. It was her second win of her career out of three starts. She is owned by Robert Cooper, J & T Silva Stables, and driver Corey Callahan. She paid $17.80 to win.

In the second division, it was Bettors Up closing fast up the inside for the score. The daughter of Bettors Delight was shuffled back, but was able to find room late to out close the pocket sitting Idyllic Beach (Yannick Gingras) to win in a time of 1:53.3 for Ontario's Brad Grant and Michelle McEneny. Scott McEneny is the trainer. It was her third victory in four career starts, and one of five driving wins on the afternoon for driver Dave Miller. She paid $5.80 to win.

The third and final division was won by the pocket-sitting Agent Q (Dave Miller). The daughter of Western Terror got to the front, but yielded to the brushing Caviart Ally (Andrew McCarthy) past the quarter pole. She closed in a stout :27.4 to get the job done, winning by three lengths in 1:53.3. It was the first career win for the Aaron Lambert trainee, who is owned by the team of Scharf, Rochetti, Rochetti Jr. and Muscara. She paid $3.60 to win.
