On another warm evening (Friday, July 22) in the Chicagoland area, three divisions of leg three of the Incredible Tillie Stakes were contested at Hawthorne Race Course. The Incredible Tillie is for Illinois-bred two-year-old filly pacers.

The first division went as race seven on the Friday card over a fast track and Princess Sage was sent away as the favourite. Leaving for lead, Princess Sage made the top easily through the opening quarter of :28.3. On the backside, the 1-5 favourite maintained her lead for trainer/driver Freddie Patton Jr. through the half in :58.3. On the turn, Princess Sage opened a five-length lead through three-quarters in 1:27. In the stretch, Princess Sage shortened, but held on by a length and a half to win in 1:56. Fox Valley Charliz closed for second while Pinstripe Pants finished third.

Owned by Keli Jo Bell and Patton Jr., Princess Sage paid $2.60, $2.10, and $2.10. Fox Valley Charliz paid $4.60 and $3.20 while Pinstripe Pants returned $3.00 to show.

The second division of the Incredible Tillie had a full field of 10 and Fox Valley Honor was bet down to favouritism off a 30-1 morning line. Filly Forty made the lead early, but was quickly pressed by My Mona Me through the quarter in :29.1. On the backside, Razzleme Dazzleme took over through the half in :59.2. After three-quarters in 1:28.2, Razzleme Dazzleme led the field into the lane.
