There were six divisions of Pennsylvania Stallion Series races for two-year-old filly pacers at Harrah's Philadelphia on Wednesday afternoon (July 8), each going for a purse of $20,000.

In the first division, it was Sue Oakes and Chuck Pompey's Nips Beach Girl (Yannick Gingras) winning. The daughter of Somebeachsomewhere brushed to the front just beyond the quarter pole and was able to win comfortably under wraps. The Chris Oakes trainee is now two-for-two in her career, pacing a lifetime-best 1:54. She paid $3.40 to win.

Division two saw the heavily favoured Twice An Angel (Brett Miller) notch a convincing three length win. The daughter of Dragon Again had to brush the lead twice before securing the victory in 1:57 for White Birch Farms. It was the first career win for the Nancy Johansson trainee, who paid $2.60.

In the third division, it was Fred Grant trainee Sweet As Sugar (Tom Jackson) springing the mild upset. The daughter of Yankee Cruiser drafted behind the heavily favoured Hot Spot Hanover (Andy Miller) before closing fast up the inside to win in 1:56.2. The Birnam Wood Farm's filly paid $13.60 to win.

There was another upset in division four, as Dirk Simpson trainee Sea Rose (Andy Miller) took the field start to finish. The daughter of Dragon Again was able to hold off the furious late close from Ive League (Yannick Gingras) for her first career win in 1:55.3. Sea Rose ($22.40) is owned by Desyllas Racing, Ed Bromley, Wiliiam Beck, and Carol Rieken.

In the fifth division, it was Howard Taylor and Ed Gold's Northern Soiree (Corey Callahan) going all the way. The daughter of Western Ideal pounced on the lead from post three and made every call a winning one, stopping the clock in 1:56.4. The Doug Lewis trainee paid $8.20 to win.

The sixth and final division went to Chuck Grubbs' Foolish Terror (Scott Zeron). The daughter of Western Terror drafted in the pocket behind the heavily favoured Jk Isntshelovely until the stretch, where she was able to out close the favourite by a nose, stopping the clock in 1:55.1. The Bruce Riegle trainee returned $10.60.
