Muscle Shirt, who won the Helen Smith Final last month, added the $85,000 New Jersey Sire Stakes Final for three-year-old trotting fillies to her resume on Thursday at Freehold Raceway.

The daughter of Muscles Yankee was on top at every call in the second race and held on for a three-quarter length victory over Fancy Vacation [by Dream Vacation] in 1:57.1.

Only four fillies were behind the gate with Winbak Brat [Muscles Yankee] finishing four and a half lengths back in third and Dreamanda [Dream Vacation] in fourth.

Muscle Shirt, driven by Jeff Gregory and trained by Chuck Sylvester, paid $4.00 to win. There was no place or show wagering.

Muscle Shirt, who has won five of her last six starts, has finished in-the-money in eight of 12 outings in 2008. Lifetime, she has nine wins, one second and two thirds from 19 starts.

The filly has flourished at Freehold, winning the elimination and $70,000 Helen Smith Final and the half-mile track's first and third rounds as well as the final of New Jersey Sire Stakes.

Muscle Shirt has banked more than $200,000 for owners Irving Liverman of Hampstead, Que.; Neal Goldman of Washington Township; Alan Caplan of Manalapan, New Jersey and Keith Dickstein of Las Vegas, Nevada.
