Illinois conceived and foaled two-year-old trotting fillies were in the spotlight on Wednesday night at Balmoral Park as a field of 10 looked for eight starting spots in next week’s $105,000 Lady Lincoln Land Stake Final. Those top eight finishers in Wednesday’s $15,000 event will join Bands Pippa and Graceful Spirit who received byes into the final on a money earned basis.
 
When all was said and done James Bafia and Eugene White’s Bailey’s Wish emerged with a very easy wire to wire score, reporting home with a 4 ¼ length verdict in 1:59.4.
 
Confidently handled by Dave Magee the daughter of Southwind Breeze—Jen zipped right to the front from post position two and proceeded to cruise through splits of 30.0, 1:00.2 & 1:30.2.
 
With plenty still in reserve the Dirk Simpson trained miss trotted home in 29.2 to secure the third win in her career. Fox Valley Skylar (Dale Hiteman) finished second while S V Spirit (Todd Warren) was third. Also gaining spots in the final were Green Acres, Say No Mo, Lora Lee Breeze, Vienna and Fox Valley Hosanna.
 
Sent off as a close second choice in the wagering Bailey’s Wish returned $7.60, $4.60 & $3.40 while moving her record to 3-2-2 in 10 starts while upping her bankroll to $40,838.
