Beautyonthebeach brushed to the front and faced little challenge when taking the lone $30,000 Kentucky Sire Stakes (KYSS) split for three-year-old pacing fillies on Sunday, Aug. 25 at The Red Mile.

Driver Brett Miller placed Beautyonthebeach fourth while Summer Charm led the field towards a :27.4 opening quarter. Miller then angled the Gregg McNair-trained daughter of Somebeachsomewhere wide and rushed to the top before a :55.4 half.

Carousel pulled first over from sixth heading towards the final turn and approached the pacesetter moving to three-quarters in 1:23.3, but promptly retreated when straightening for the finish. Beautyonthebeach kicked clear of her competition by the eighth pole to win by open lengths in 1:50.4. Hydration weaved through competition off a pylon trip to take second while Margret Hill rallied through the center of the track for third.

A homebred for James Avritt Sr., Beautyonthebeach won her third race from 10 starts this season and her eighth from 23 overall, earning $334,873. She paid $2.60 to win.

Driver Andrew McCarthy pushed Dancin Lou to the lead through a quick tempo and widened his advantage through the stretch to win the fastest of two $30,000 KYSS second preliminary divisions.

Western Exposure left for the front from post 8 while Pyro tucked into the pocket. Even-money favourite Natives Sweetlou raced third before tipping off the pylons with Dancin Lou in tow heading to a :27.1 first quarter. Natives Sweetlou took the lead up the backside but yielded for the pocket as Dancin Lou marched by to control the pace past a :53.2 half. Dancin Lou then withstood a minor late challenge from Natives Sweetlou past three-quarters in 1:20.4 in progress to an open-length victory in 1:48.3. Natives Sweetlou held second from Odds On Boca Raton rallying from last for third.

A son of Sweet Lou bred by Anvil & Lace Farm, Dancin Lou won his seventh race from 12 starts this season and his eighth from 22 overall, earning $105,203. Tahnee Camilleri conditions the $6.80 winner for owners David Kryway and 1362313 Ontario Ltd.

Odds-on favourite Cant Beach That swept to the front passing the half and maintained command in progress to a 1:49 victory in the $30,000 opening division of KYSS.

Captain Ahab cleared control from the outermost post with stablemate Major Deception securing the pocket and Cant Beach That, starting from post 1, moving into third. Captain Ahab took the field by the first quarter in :27.4 but yielded the lead as Cant Beach That blitzed to the top past a :54.3 half.

Skip To My Lou—under a tight hold—edged outside and advanced towards Cant Beach That moving to the final turn, pressing the pacesetter towards three-quarters in 1:21.4. Cant Beach That extended his lead through the stretch while Captain Ahab slid through an inside seam for second while Skip To My Lou finished third, but was placed fourth due to flattening the tire of Major Deception, who finished fourth but was placed third, past the half.

Winning his fifth race from 10 starts this season and his sixth from 19 overall, Cant Beach That has earned $99,104 for owner-breeder Melvin Segal and co-owners Kentuckiana Racing Stable and Eddie Gran. Chris Page steered the $3.00 winner for trainer Brett Pelling.

KYSS action resumes at The Red Mile on Saturday, Aug. 31 with the third preliminary for two-year-old trotting colts and fillies. The card will start at 7:00 p.m. (EDT).
