Ace Of Pace and Lionness Hanover scored back-to-back victories in 1:53 today at the Meadowlands Racetrack to become the fastest two-year-old pacing fillies in the history of the New Jersey Sire Stakes Program.

In the first of two $29,000 NJSS divisions, Ace Of Pace, a daughter of Cams Card Shark, swept to the lead down the backstretch to win in record time for the Belle Amore Stable, driver George Brennan and trainer Mark Ford. The victory was the filly’s second win in as many starts.

The 1:53 clocking erased the previous record of 1:53.1 that was set in 1991 by Emory Girl and matched in 1999 by Ladyjack.

Lionness Hanover, sired by Western Ideal, took control at the three-quarter mile mark and pulled away to win the second division. Her 1:53 winning time equaled the new record set one race earlier by Ace Of Pace. It was the first career victory for the Western Ideal filly driven by Andy Miller and trained by Steve Elliott for co-owners Carter Racing Stable, Martha Frank and Elliott.

These winners will be among the top 10 point earners competing in the $200,000 NJSS Championship Final on July 17 at The Meadowlands.
