g Scoop and Major Girl were both upset winners in Monday night's pair of $95,200(C) Robert Stewart Stakes divisions for 2-year-old fillies at Mohawk Racetrack.


In the opening contest, The Big Scoop sat inside for much of the mile before popping out late in the stretch and overhauling race favorite Rockn Highland in 1:56.1. It was another length back to St. Lads Trixie who finished third.

The Big Scoop, a $7,000 yearling purchase who is a sister to a pair of $500,000-winning siblings, was making her first career start for trainer Randy Hill and owner Darryl Hill of Ohsweken, Ont. The daughter of Grinfromeartoear-Open Book returned $25.20 for the win.


Major Girl used a strong off-the-pace rally to capture the second division for driver Rick Zeron in 1:54.3. The daughter of Art Major-Teenager Girls collared Western Dancing right at the finish with Tiz To Dream landing the show spot.


The filly, who is a half sister to $1 million winner Lady Dillinger, was making her second career start for her owner-trainer Gaetan Hebert. She returned a whopping $43.30 for the win. (WEG)
