CAMPBELLVILLE, July 24 - The Show Returns, a full sister to world champion Put On A Show, captured the first leg of the Whenuwishuponastar Series Thursday night at Mohawk Racetrack.

Only one $12,000 division was needed for leg one of the three-week series for two-year-old pacing fillies.

The Show Returns and driver Jack Moiseyev got away fourth and make a second-quarter brush to the lead through a sensible half of :58.4.

After leading the field past the three-quarter pole, Moiseyev turned up the tempo with The Show Returns for a final quarter of :27 to win by a length over Sheeztoughenough in 1:55.1.

Aintsheasweetie and Yes You Can finished third and fourth respectively.

The leg one victory was a maiden breaking score for The Show Returns in her third start of her young career.

A daughter of Rocknroll Hanover - Stienams Place, The Show Returns is trained by Chris Ryder for owners Richard and Joanne Young.

The same connections campaigned world champion Put On A Show ($2,459,903 - 1:47.3), a full-sister to The Show Returns, and I Luv The Nitelife ($1,946,011 - 1:48.4), last year's three-year-old pacing filly of the year.

The Show Returns was $180,000 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale purchase and in three starts has earned just over $17,000. She paid $4.30 to win.

Leg two of the Whenuwishuponastar Series goes next Thursday (July 31) at Mohawk, with the final scheduled to take place on Thursday, August 7.
