Owner Jesse De Long's Shes A Foxie Lady, in rein to John De Long, chopped a full second off the Running Aces track record for two-year-old trotting fillies on Tuesday night to capture a $13,500 race restricted to state-bred freshmen trotters.

The daughter of SOS Lunar Eclipse, trained when in Minnesota by Justin Anfinson, stormed home in 2:00.2 to lower the record that was set earlier this summer by Babygetyershineon. Chewy Dunkerton and Al Mar Passion were both within a length at the wire in the record-setting mile turned in by Shes A Foxie Lady.

A pair of $9,000 Open Paces was also contested on the program with familiar names coming up winners.

In the horses and geldings split it was Restless Yankee (Nick Roland) resuming his winning ways after a pair of near misses in the weekly feature race. It was the 39th career win for Ron Emerson and Mark Holtan's prize possession who is trained by Bob Lems. He will be the likely favourite in his division when all the best Minnesota-sired horses line up for eleven $20,000 state championship races on August 31. Ya U Betcha, another Minnesota-sired gelding, was second with Six Gun rounding out the top three finishers.

In the distaff feature, the outstanding three-year-old filly Show Runner beat the best older mares racing in Minnesota for the fifth time since moving up to the open ranks eight starts ago. The daughter of Little Steven now boasts 11 seasonal triumphs and over $60,000 in 2013 earnings. She is trained and driven by Tim Maier and owned by his wife Denise in partnership with Eileen Brodbar. The winner overcame the assigned outside post to beat Still Electric by a head with Cheese Plumper third.
