The Red Mile teletimer shows Youaremycandygirl's new world record of 1:50 flat

A 1:50 world record mile by Youaremycandygirl highlighted International Stallion Stakes action for 2-year-old pacers of both sexes on Saturday afternoon at The Red Mile.

Coming off a victory in the rich She's A Great Lady final at Mohawk, Youaremycandygirl (Yannick Gingras) raced in the $66,300 second division for fillies, and she led on the outside at the 27 3/5 opening quarter before she cut loose Rainbow Room (David Miller) to sit in the pocket through a half in 55 2/5 and a three-quarters in 1:22 2/5.  Youaremycandygirl was back on the attack in the lane, overhauling Rainbow Room and going on to lower the world record for a rookie pacing filly by a fifth of a second.  Rainbow Room wound up second, and Baron Remy (Brian Sears) came in third.

It was the second world record of the day for tandem of driver Yannick Gingras and trainer Ron Burke, joining the 1:49 2/5 performance by Hannelore Hanover in the Allerage Farms Open Trot.

"I don't really remember if we have," said Burke about setting two world records in one day. "It's a very good day. Those (along with Hannelore Hanover) would be the two we thought going in that had the best shots going in, so you have to win them because you aren't going to win many you shouldn't."

Youaremycandygirl, owned by W.J. Donovan, is a daughter of American Ideal who has now won five times from seven lifetime attempts, and she has earned $317,195.  Bred by Birnam Wood Farms, Youaremycandygirl was purchased for $150,000 at the Standardbred Horse Sale and is the second foal out of the Somebeachsomewhere mare Sweet Lady Jane ($119,789).  Sweet Lady Jane is a half-sister to Sweet Lou (Yankee Cruiser, $3,478,894) and Bettor Sweet (Bettor's Delight, $2,782,353).  Youaremycandygirl, the even-money favorite, paid $4.00 to win.

Youaremycandygirl will be heading to Yonkers Raceway to race in the New York Sire Stakes finals next Saturday and then the Breeders Crown.

Back in the opening $65,300 group, Miswave Hanover (Marcus Miller) rallied from seventh and last at the half to a 1:51 2/5 victory.  After sitting well off the fractions of 27, 53 1/5, and 1:21 3/5, Miswave Hanover charged through the stretch to win by a length and a quarter over Majorsspeciallady (Gingras).  Kj's Bekah (Tim Tetrick) was the third-place finisher.

Bred by Hanover Shoe Farms Inc., Miswave Hanover was a $20,000 Standardbred Horse Sale purchase and is out of the Western Hanover mare Maremma Hanover ($102,190), making Miswave Hanover a half-sister to Martini Hanover (Dragon Again, $469,254).  She was dispatched at 13-1 and returned $29.80.

Completing the filly winners was 1-5 favorite Kissin In The Sand (Gingras), who paced away through the lane on her way to a 1:51 win in the final $66,300 split.  After being on point through panels of 27 4/5, 56 1/5, and 1:24 3/5, Kissin In The Sand came home in 26 2/5 to defeat pocket-sitter Band Stand (Joe Bongiorno) by 4 3/4 lengths.  Sansovina Hanover (David Miller) took third.

Colts were divided up into four $58,000 sections, and Hayden Hanover (Andy Miller) was the first winner, taking a 1:50 mark.  Hayden Hanover fronted his seven foes through stations of 27 4/5, 55 3/5, and 1:23, and a 27 second final station was enough to keep That's The Plan (Tetrick) at bay by a head.  Shadow Cat (Corey Callahan) got third.

Julie Miller trains Hayden Hanover, a colt by Somebeachsomehwere, for owners Pinske Stables and Jim Simpson.  Hayden Hanover now has a pair of triumphs from ten trips behind the gate, and he has earnings of $288,092.  Hayden Hanover, bred by Hanover Shoe Farms Inc., was taken out of the Standardbred Horse Sale for $85,000, and is out of the Western Hanover mare Hana Hanover ($1,206,644).  That means Hayden Hanover is a half-brother to the likes of Invest In Art (Art Major, $222,218).  Hayden Hanover was the 9-5 second choice and returned $5.80 to win.

In the next flight Babes Dig Me (Scott Zeron) took command from Karpathian Kid (David Miller) beyond the 27 2/5 first quarter, then reached the half in 55 and the three-quarters in 1:22 1/5.  Miller brought Karpathian Kid back to the outside in the stretch, and he went by Babes Dig Me to tally by a length and a quarter in 1:50 1/5.  Wes Delight (Gingras) rallied for third.

A winner during the first week of Grand Circuit action at The Red Mile, Nutcracker Sweet (Tetrick) backed that up with a 1:50 2/5 performance in the third division.  He was first-over past the 54 3/5 half, got to within a length of Fashiononthebeach (David Miller) at the 1:23 three-quarters, then put that foe away through the stretch drive to win by 2 1/4 lengths.  Ideal Flip (Marcus Miller) was back in third.

Nutcracker Sweet, a Bettor's Delight colt, is trained by Jimmy Takter for owners Howard Taylor, Order By Stable, and Richard Lombardo.  Nutcracker Sweet, bred by Birnam Wood Farms and taken out of the Standardbred Horse Sale for $150,000, has four triumphs from nine trips behind the gate, and he shows $114,116 in earnings.  Nutcracker Sweet is out of the Falcons Future mare Sweet Future, making him a half-brother to Sweet Lou (Yankee Cruiser, $3,478,894) and a full brother to Bettor Sweet ($2,782,353).  Nutcracker Sweet returned $2.10 to win as the 1-9 choice.

"If you can get a few nice colts together and the race sets up right, these horses would go in 1:49 and change," offered Takter.  "I'm happy with the race. He went a good mile."

Derick GiwnerLost In Time was impressive againMaking his first start since winning the Metro at Mohawk, Lost In Time (Zeron) was a 1:50 4/5 victor in the finale.  Lost In Time popped pocket to take charge beyond the 28 1/5 first quarter, and then he clicked off a half in 56 and a three-quarters in 1:24 3/5.  Pocket-sitter and early leader I'm A Big Deal (David Miller) tried to hang with Lost In Time in the stretch, but it was to no avail as he prevailed by three lengths.  Twin B Tuffenuff (Brett Miller) collected third.

"He's a really relaxed horse and being on the front was perfect. He was just waiting for me to ask him," said Zeron.  "I feel like we haven't hit his bottom. Every time I ask him to go he respond.

"I'm excited about the Breeders Crown, especially going in with a fresh horse like this one."

Jim Mulinix trains Lost In Time for owners A Rocknroll Dance Racing, Denny Miller, William Rufenacht, and Team S Racing Stable.  A $47,000 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale purchase, Lost In Time now has three wins and two second-place finishes from five lifetime starts, and he has earned $375,555.  Bred by Diamond Creek Farm LLC., Lost In Time is out of the Artiscape mare Summer Mystery, making him a half-brother to Vertical Horizon (Western Ideal, $856,063).  Sent off at 6-5, Lost In Time paid $4.60 to win.
