A duo of $30,000 Indiana Gold Sire Stakes for three-year-old pacing fillies highlighted Friday’s 12-race card at Hoosier Park, with Dont Flash Me posting the fastest time of the night with a 1:53 performance.

Soaring Honey was headstrong from the start and powered out to reach the first marker in :26.2. Molly Brown maintained the rail position to follow along closely in second. Trace Tetrick and Dont Flash Me opted for a ground-saving trip along the rail in third as Pete Wrenn moved Insatiable Desire to the outer flow down the backside. Insatiable Desire reached the leader’s wheel at the half mile time of :55.4 as Soaring Honey continued to call the shots. Insatiable Desire began to retreat, leaving just enough room for Tetrick to pull Dont Flash Me to the outside around the three-quarter time of 1:24.4.

Dont Flash Me pressed on to the wire to win in a career-best clocking of 1:53. The bettor’s choice, Sheza Cool Cookie, came from off the pace to finish a close second. Misschipbyart rounded out the top three finishers. Dont Flash Me returned $11.40 for the victory.

Trained by Carthel Daulton, Dont Flash Me scored the sixth win of her sophomore season in only eight outings. The homebred filly is sired by Dontgetinmyway and out of the Electric Yankee mare, Electric Flash. Dont Flash Me has bankrolled over $30,000 for owners Jerry Haynes and Wendy Brandt.

Roberts Ideal and Ricky Macomber scored the minor upset in the second division in gate-to-wire fashion. She stopped the clock in 1:53.3. The three-year-old picked up the third Sire Stakes win of her sophomore season.

Leaving from post six, Macomber placed Roberts Ideal directly on the lead from the start, posting first half fractions of :28.1 and :58. The abbreviated field of six remained in single file fashion with the heavily-favoured American Girl along the rail in fifth. Miss Millie was well-placed in the pocket seat second as Lima Calliope followed intently in third. As the field rounded the final turn, American Girl made her bid at the leader but Roberts Ideal saved her best for last. With a :26.4 closing panel, Roberts Ideal sprinted to the wire to stop the clock in 1:53.3. Miss Millie held on for the second-place finish, with American Girl putting in a game effort to finish third. Roberts Ideal paid $9.80 for the win.

Trained by Ron Burke, the I Scoot Hanover filly is owned by Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi and Frank Baldachino. Roberts Ideal has won seven of 22 starts with career earnings over $150,000.

Dont Flash Me and Roberts Ideal will advance to the $200,000 Indiana Sire Stakes final for three-year-old pacing fillies on Saturday, July 14. The race will be part of Hoosier Champions Night, featuring more than $1 million in purses for the Indiana Sire Stakes. Friday, July 13 will also be part of the national harness racing promotion, “Back to the Track” night. The Indiana Standardbred Association will offer several addition promotions and giveaways throughout the weekend to mark the final night of harness racing for 2012.
