Barona Mercedes completed a sweep of the Alberta Sires Stakes Diamond leg for three-year-old pacing fillies with a dominate victory in the $51,300 final on Saturday afternoon at Alberta Downs.

Barona Mercedes established the lead from post two and was never seriously threatened as she raced past panels of :28.2, :57.4 and 1:26 en route to the three length triumph in a new lifetime mark of 1:53.1. She was the 4-5 favourite after winning her elimination by five lengths in 1:53.4 last weekend and returned $3.70 to her backers at the betting windows.

Another elimination winner and 8-5 second choice, Nighttraintovegas (Brandon Campbell), was tipped first over from third down the backstretch and chased Barona Mercedes home in second-place, with Mother Melody (Jamie Gray), also an elimination winner, closing for third.
