Two $39,000 Indiana Sires Stakes divisions were contested for two-year-old trotting colts and geldings on Wednesday (Aug. 26) at Harrah’s Hoosier Park Racing & Casino. It was the third round of the six-leg series for the freshman competitors.

Breckenridge turned in an impressive front-stepping effort to score his second lifetime victory and second score in stakes action, stopping the timer in 1:57.2. Driven, trained and co-owned by Dan Shetler, Breckenridge was able to overcome post position nine to win by four lengths and establish a new lifetime best in the process.

The homebred son of Class Included and Dazzling Miss is owned in partnership by Dan Shetler and Dojea Stables, and has now bankrolled $47,622 in career earnings. Breckenridge has now won two of five lifetime starts in his young career.

After making a costly break in his last start, Brookview Bolt rebounded gamely to pull a 14-1 upset in the second stakes division. Driven by Sam Widger, Brookview Bolt left alertly, yielded the leaded and then trotted strongly to the wire to win by two lengths in 1:57.2. The son of Swan For All and Wittys Winner scored his third win from five starts this season for trainer Ron Burke.

Owned in partnership by Burke Racing Stable, Knox Services, J&T Silva, Purnel & Libby and Weaver Bruscemi, Brookview Bolt has now earned $52,400. The 1:57.2 clocking was also a new lifetime best for the freshman colt.

Indiana Sires Stakes action for freshmen will continue at Harrah’s Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Thursday (Aug. 27). The evening’s 14-race card will feature two $41,000 divisions of Indiana Sires Stakes for two-year-old pacing fillies, along with a $10,000 guaranteed Hoosier High-5 pool in the last race of the program. Post time is 6:30 p.m.
