Thirty-seven of New York’s finest pacing fillies will converge on Batavia Downs Casino as New York Sire Stakes action continues on Wednesday night, August 3.

Five divisions highlight the 12-race program with over $120,000 in NYSS purse money up for grabs. First race post time is 6:40 p.m.

The first division takes place in Race 2, with seven fillies set to go behind starter Mark Phillips. The ones to keep your eye out for are the Bettors Delight-Silky Western filly, Silk Purse, an the Art Major-Impagain filly, Park Lane Paige.

Silk Purse comes off a 1:56.3 track record performance at Buffalo Raceway. Tim Tetrick, making his first ever Batavia Downs appearance, will drive for trainer Linda Toscano.

Park Lane Paige looks for her third win in a row after scoring in 1:54.4 at Tioga in a division of the Tompkins-Geers and in 1:57.1 at Buffalo. Once again, Jim Morrill, Jr. will steer for trainer Mark Ford.

JK Fine Art figures to get all the attention in the second NYSS division, race number five. The Art Major-Presidential Lady offspring is two-for-two in her career with wins at Yonkers (1:56.2) and Buffalo (1:58.1). Tetrick will once again be in the sulky for trainer Toscano.

Centralia Hanover, by Art Major-Calgary Hanover, looks like the horse to beat in the fourth division of sire stakes, Race 8. She’s two-for-two against New York breds, with victories at Yonkers (1:56.1) and Buffalo (1:58). Her only defeat came at Harrah’s Chester when she made a break at the start. Morrill will be in the bike for trainer Mark Harder.

The final stakes of the evening is carded as Race 10. Handsoffmycookie (Art Major-Observe Me) starts out as a prohibitive 4-5 favourite on the morning line. She sports back-to-back scores at Yonkers (1:57.3) and Buffalo (1:57.1). Trainer Scott Di Domenico will have the services of Tetrick.

The other sire stakes of the evening is Race 7. It’s the most contentious of the events and features an eight-horse field and seven betting interests.
