On Thursday, July 25 at Monticello Raceway, New York-bred two-year-old trotting fillies will be in action in New York Sire Stakes and Excelsior Series action.

The NYSS races will mark the second stop for the fillies en route to the $225,000 final which will be contested at Yonkers Raceway in late September.

The inaugural NYSS freshmen filly trots were contested at Buffalo Raceway on July 3 and two of the three division winners will be in action Thursday at Monticello.

Incredulous, a daughter of Credit Winner-Trapezius from the powerful Linda Toscano stable, was a 2:04.1 winner, and the Big Apple Deli-Lanai Blue Chip filly Interplanet Terri won her division in 2:04.4 for Saratoga Raceway-based trainer Glen Raia.

Of the 28 fillies entered in the four $32,662 splits, a scant few have already broken their maidens. Besides the aforementioned, others already with seasonal records include Ray Schnittker’s Caroline Street, a daughter of Conway Hall-Chippewa Street who scored a 2:05.4 triumph in a division of the Landmark Stakes at Historic Track on July 5, and a pair of fillies from the Andy and Julie Miller barn.

Annies List and L Dees Scripture each have race records taken on five-eighths ovals. The former, a daughter of Conway Hall-Annes Promise, won a non-winners trot at Harrah’s Philadelphia in a time of 1:57.3, while the latter, a Credit Winner-Graceful Way filly, won a leg of the Tompkins-Geers Stakes at Tioga Downs in 1:58.3.

However, in the four $12,700 Excelsior Series trots three fillies have already won a pari-mutuel race.

Gates Brunet’s, Pazza, a daughter of Crazed-Button Box, won an overnight trot at Vernon Downs in 2:01, and the Arnold Marks-trained Steuben Dreamboat won an Excelsior Series filly trot at Buffalo in 2:08.4. Steven Pratt’s Cash Hall-Honey Starlet filly also won an Excelsior Series trot at Buffalo Raceway in 2:06.3.

Fourteen races are carded for the Thursday program, with eight for the two-year-olds and undoubtedly other freshmen fillies will earn a race record that afternoon, too.

First-race post time is set for 12:50 p.m.
