Scarborough, ME --- The Maine Sire Stakes returned to Scarborough Downs on Friday (July 2), showcasing the 2-year-old filly pacing division, with three splits racing for purses in excess of $28,000. A field of 26 rookie fillies came to the raceway but only three could parade victorious. All three winners scored impressive open length victories.

Barbra Ann and Maeve came forth from the powerful KDK Standardbreds stable, giving driver/trainer Kevin Switzer double the pleasure in the star-studded stakes program.

Barbra Ann, a daughter of Goin To The Beach, took a new lifetime mark of 2:01.1, while her stablemate, Maeve, a daughter of Veeza, also laid claim to a new speed standard, this one in 2:03.

Magic Card delivered the fireworks in the final stakes dash with veteran teamster Leigh Fitch calling the shots for the Gordon Corey Stable. This 2-year-old daughter of Veeza is owned and bred by Winbak Farm. Magic Card remains undefeated in her young career, now having scored her third consecutive victory in a lifetime best of 2:01.4.
