Two divisions of the New York Sire Stakes for two-year-old filly trotters take centre stage at Vernon Downs on Friday (September 22).

In the first division, carrying a purse of $55,500, the 2-1 morning line favourite is Supergirl Riley (Marcus Miller). The Muscle Mass-Crown Laurel filly is owned by Paymaq Racing, George Golemes, and Harvey Eisman, while trained by Erv Miller. She has captured three legs of the NYSS with two wins at Yonkers and one at Saratoga.

The top competition is the Åke Svanstedt-trained entry of Fury Road (Chris Lems) and Lucky Ava (Svanstedt), who are the second choice at 3-1.

Fury Road (Muscle Mass-Bar Ballad) is owned by Knutsson Trotting, Inc. She has captured three legs of the NYSS with wins at Batavia, Monticello, and Saratoga. She was second to Supergirl Riley her last time out at Yonkers.

Lucky Ava (Lucky Chucky-Ava Marion) is owned by Åke Svanstedt, Inc., Little E, LLC, and Van Camp Trotting Corp. She has four NYSS victories, with wins at Buffalo, Batavia, and two victories at Yonkers.

In the second division, which will go for $56,500, undefeated Plunge Blue Chip (Svanstedt) is the morning line favourite at 2-1. She is part of another Svanstedt trained entry along with Natalie Hanover (Miller).

Plunge Blue Chip (Muscle Mass-Dunk The Donato) is owned by Åke Svanstedt, Inc. and Blue Chip Bloodstock Inc. She is five-for-five, winning all of her NYSS starts. She has wins at Buffalo, Batavia, Tioga, and a pair of wins at Yonkers.
