Warrawee Ubeaut, a filly who last year became the fastest two-year-old pacer in history thanks to her 1:48.3 win in a division of the International Stallion Stakes at Lexington’s Red Mile, is among the Dan Patch Award winners making their 2019 returns in Saturday’s (April 13) qualifiers at The Meadowlands.

Others in that group are four-year-old pacing mares Kissin In The Sand and Youaremycandygirl as well as four-year-old gelding pacer Dorsoduro Hanover. Kissin In The Sand and Dorsoduro Hanover were 2018 Dan Patch honourees while Youaremycandygirl received her award in 2017.

Ron Burke trains Warrawee Ubeaut, Youaremycandygirl, and Dorsoduro Hanover. Nancy Johansson trains Kissin In The Sand.

Warrawee Ubeaut won seven of 12 races last year and earned $646,995. Her wins included the Breeders Crown and Kentuckiana Stallion Management Stakes in addition to her world-record victory in Lexington.

“She had a great year,” Burke said earlier this year. “There is no limit on what she can do. The filly has as much speed as any horse we’ve ever had. I think as long as we manage her correctly, she is going to be very competitive and can do special things.”

Dorsoduro Hanover led all three-year-old pacers in earnings last year with $1.28 million. He won 10 of 22 races, with his victories including the Breeders Crown, Delvin Miller Adios, and Pennsylvania Sire Stakes championship. He also had six second-place finishes, including in the Meadowlands Pace and Little Brown Jug.

Youaremycandygirl won nine of 17 races last season and earned $554,382.

Kissin In The Sand won 10 of 15 races and never finished worse than second on her way to a division-best $$884,440 in purses. Her wins included the James M. Lynch Memorial, Pennsylvania Sire Stakes championship, Mistletoe Shalee, and Bluegrass Stakes. She was second in the Breeders Crown and Fan Hanover.

Burke will send out 17 horses Saturday morning at the Big M. Also entered from his stable are four-year-old pacing mare Percy Bluechip, an O’Brien Award winner in 2017 and Breeders Crown champion last season, and three-year-old filly trotter Sonnet Grace, who won the Goldsmith Maid.

Other returning stakes winners in his group are Sylph Hanover and St Somewhere (three-year-old filly pacers), Baron Remy (four-year-old mare pacer), De Los Cielos Deo (three-year-old colt pacer), This Is The Plan (four-year-old gelding pacer), and Filibuster Hanover (five-year-old gelding pacer).

Johansson has nine horses entered, with stakes-winners Blood Money (three-year-old colt pacer) and Thinkbig Dreambig (four-year-old stallion pacer) among those joining Kissin In The Sand on the trip.

Trainer Ake Svanstedt sends out seven horses, including stakes winners Yes Mickey (five-year-old gelding trotter), Plunge Blue Chip (four-year-old mare trotter), and Ice Attraction (five-year-old mare trotter).

Other returning stakes winners entered on Saturday include Yonkers International Trot champion Cruzado Dela Noche (seven-year-old stallion trotter) for trainer Marcus Melander as well as Julie Miller-trained Special Honor (three-year-old filly trotter) and Top Flight Angel (five-year-old stallion trotter), Chris Ryder’s Stonebridge Soul (three-year-old filly pacer), and Mark Silva’s Dealt A Winner (seven-year-old gelding pacer).
