Three divisions of New York Sire Stakes juvenile pacing fillies will take centre stage at Tioga Downs on Friday, August 4.

The first division looks to be a showdown between the Ron Burke-trained entry of Step Beyond (Art Major-Apogee Hanover) with Youaremycandygirl (American Ideal-Sweet Lady Jane), who is the morning line favorite (at 2-1) and the Kevin McDermott-trained Hurrikane Shorty (Art Major-Speed Date), who is 5-2.

Step Beyond (to be driven by Marcus Miller), who is owned by Burke Racing Stable, F. Baldachino, Silva, Purnell & Libby, and Weaver Bruscemi, is still looking for her first career win. During the Vernon Downs leg of the NYSS, she finished a solid third. In her other NYSS start, she finished fourth at Saratoga.

Youaremycandygirl (Matt Kakaley), is owned by W J Donovan, she had a bad first start at Vernon Downs in the NYSS, but had an impressive win at Saratoga in NYSS action. She won by a little over two lengths in 1:54.1 and used a :27.2 last quarter.

Hurrikane Shorty (Jim Marohn Jr.) is owned by Little E LLC, J. Settlemoir, A. Geiger, and D. Stolz. She has two wins and a second in three starts. She won her last start at Saratoga in NYSS action and raced a gate-to-wire, 1:55 mile. She had to settle for second during the Vernon Downs leg of the NYSS.

In the second division, the 5-2 morning line favourite is the Erv Miller-trained All On Top Hanover (Betterthancheddar-Allamerican Apex). She is owned by by Crawford Farms Racing, Ervin Miller Stable, R. Michelon and G. Golemes. All On Top Hanover (Marcus Miller) has won her last two starts, including a 1:55, gate-to-wire win at Saratoga in NYSS action.

The second choice at 7-2 is Twin B Peaches (Betterthancheddar-Beach Bound). She is trained by Blake Macintosh. The freshman filly captured a leg of the NYSS at Vernon Downs in 1:52, which was one of her two lifetime wins. Twin B Peaches (Jody Jamieson) is owned by Onaroll Stable, Touch Stone Farms, and Reginald Petitpas.

The third choice is the Nicholas Devita-trained Another Lawsuit (American Ideal-Court Stenographer) at 4-1. She secured her only career victory during the Buffalo Raceway NYSS leg where she won in 1:57.2. Another Lawsuit (Jim Morrill Jr.) is owned by Carl Sackheim.

The final division features the 5-2 morning line favourite Alexis Faith (American Ideal-Cannae Cammie). She is owned by West Wins Stable, Jim Fielding, J. Robert Darrow, and Kevin McKinlay and is trained by Casie Coleman. Alexis Faith (Jim Morrill Jr.), is three for three in her freshman season, including a NYSS victory in her last start at Saratoga, in which she won in 1:55.3.

Ubettergo Go (Art Major-Ubetterthink Think) is the chief rival and has been named the 7-2 second choice. She has won two legs of the NYSS. She won her divisions at Vernon Downs (in 1:53) and Buffalo Raceway (1:57.2). Ubettergo Go (Jody Jamieson) is owned by Tony Basile, Reginald Petitpas, Ozzie Mackay, and trainer Blake MacIntosh.

The other top contender is Betterthangraduate (Betterthancheddar-Western Graduate), who is trained by Ron Burke. She is the morning line third choice (5-1). She recorded victories in two legs of the NYSS. She won her divisions at Vernon Downs (1:55) and Buffalo Raceway (1:57.1). The two-year-old was second to Alexis Faith at Saratoga in NYSS action, as she lost by a length in the stretch. Betterthangraduate (Matt Kakaley) is owned by Burke Racing Stable, Silva, Purnell & Libby, P. Colluera and Weaver Bruscemi.
