Five divisions of freshman pacing fillies lined up behind the gate Monday, August 15 at Indiana Downs for the second round of Indiana Sires Stakes competition. Favourites carried the day in three $40,000 splits, led by Insatiable Desire. The Pro Bono Best filly turned in the fastest time, as she tripped the timer in 1:55.2.

Driver Kayne Kauffman left from Post 5 with Insatiable Desire in the night’s second race, and the pair took control of the engine before the quarter. After the opening-quarter timer flashed in a :27.3, the Lester Clemmons trainee was shuffled to second behind Bluebird Jettart, who was piloted by Elliott Deaton. Kauffman had the favourite out and moving on the way to three quarters (1:27), as the filly surged to a five-length lead at the top of the stretch. Insatiable Desire paced home in :28.2 to win by four and three-quarter lengths. Mamajons Bluegrass and Dianes Z Tam followed in second and third, respectively.

Owned by Lester Clemmons, Brian Clemmons, John Daskivich and Jodie Daskivich, the victory was the second in as many starts for the juvenile. Bred by Mark Adams, Insatiable Desire knocked a full second off her previous best.

Favourite Kerosene and Peter Wrenn ignited in the stretch and drew away by five lengths at the line to win their $40,000 division in 1:55.4. The I Scoot Hanover-Color Me K filly collected her fourth win in five starts. Bred, owned and trained by Krista Williams, the freshman established a new lifetime mark with the win. I Scoot With Heart raced second while Our Lady Fitz finished third.

Bonos Lassie picked up her second win in three seasonal starts Monday evening with a 1:56.3 effort. The Ronnie Gillespie-owned and trained Pro Bono Best filly was guided by Dan Shetler. The favorite fired home in :28 to win by three lengths. Loretta and Trace Tetrick followed, with 57-1 Romantic Fever rounding out the trifecta. Bonos Lassie was bred by Leon Mansfield and Ailsa Craig Boys Stable.

Arts Chip N Gail outlasted a late-closing Shirleybaerg and Wrenn by a neck in the fourth division in a time of 1:57.2. American Girl, driven by Ricky Macomber, Jr., paced third. The Arts Chip filly was bred and is owned by Velocity Standardbreds. She was driven to victory by trainer Mark Evers. The filly broke her maiden in her second career start.

Fourth at the top of the stretch, Free Girl and Sam Widger overtook leader Emmasphere, steered by Brandon Bates, to win by a quarter length in 1:56. Dont Hurry Love hit the board with a third-place finish. Owned by William Cantrell and trained by Mike Hollenback, the LCB filly earned her first seasonal win.
