The Fourth of July matinee program at Tioga Downs featured four divisions of the New York Sire Stakes for two-year-old trotting fillies, and the youngsters put on quite a show.

Hypnotic Am and driver Brian Sears captured the $26,500 first division in a time of 1:56.1.

Destiny Blue Chip (Ake Svanstedt) charged out to the lead and led to first quarter in :28.4. Hypnotic Am ($2.70) took over the lead as they went by the stands for the first time. She led the group to the half in :58.1 and three-quarters in 1:27.1.

Hypnotic Am, who is owned by Courant Inc and trained by Marcus Melander, found another gear as they reached the stretch and breezed to the win in 1:56.1. Munster (Kasper Foget) finished second with Destiny Blue Chip holding on for third.

Hypnotic AM is a filly by Chapter Seven-Daydream AM. She is now one for one in her career.

Love A Good Story and teamster Troy Beyer breezed to an easy win in the $26,500 second division.

Seventimesalady (Ake Svanstedt) led to the first quarter in :27.4. Love A Good Story ($4.40) grabbed control of the race right after the quarter. She led to the half in :57.2 and three-quarters in 1:26.2. No Mas Drama (Brian Sears) went first over around the final turn and put on heavy pressure. Love a Good Story shook her off and won with ease by tying the track record for two-year-old trotting fillies in 1:55.1. Seventimesalady was second best. C Me Hyde (Phil Fluet) finished third.

Love A Good Story is a filly by Chapter Seven-Celebrity Lovin. She is trained by Julie Miller for owners Pinske Stables and the Kentuckiana Racing Stable. It was her second NYSS win. She is a perfect two for two in her career.

Senorita Rita, in rein to Scott Zeron, was much the best in the $27,000 third division.

Charlotte Chaplin (Wally Hennessey) led the way to a first quarter in :29.1. Senorita Rita ($2.50) took over the lead with a lap to go. She hit the halfway mark in :58.4. Hushabye (Brian Sears) went first over to chase her.

Senorita Rita, who is owned by Ken Jacobs and trained by Linda Toscano, continued to lead hitting three-quarters in 1:27.3. As she hit the stretch she got stronger and won easily in 1:56.1. Charlotte Chaplin came back up to take second money. Hushabye had to settle for third.

Senorita Rita, who was making her pari-mutuel debut, is a filly by Chapter Seven-Lindys Head Nurse.

The $26,500 fourth division went to Miss Jubilation and Ake Svanstedt in a time of 1:57.1.

Smooth Affair (Tyler Buter) led to the first quarter in :29 and to the half in :58.2. Sorprese (Dan Daley) went first-over down the back stretch and challenged Smooth Affair all the way to the three-quarter mark. Smooth Affair got there first in 1:26.4.

Miss Jubilation ($8.50), who is owned by trainer Ake Svanstedt with Little E LLC., and Triple Play Trotters LLC., pounced out of the pocket at the top of the stretch and blew right by to win in 1:57.1. Smooth Affair held on for second. DWs Aubrey (Kris Rickert) finished third.

Miss Jubilation is a filly by Chapter Seven-Blue Muscles. She is now one for one.

Tioga Downs leading driver Wally Hennessey won four races on the day. His wins came with Mannies Lady ($3.50), Sophias Express ($12.60), Bad Night Mare ($3.50) and Weallgottrumped ($6.00).
