ANDERSON, Ind.--May 20, 2017 -- Topville Cadillac found the winner's circle for the second consecutive week at Hoosier Park Racing & Casino as she pulled the slight upset to capture the featured harness racing event of the evening, a $21,000 Invitational Pace for fillies and mares, on Saturday, May 20. Topville Cadillac responded to a bump in class to score in 1:50.2 to establish a new lifetime best after scoring last week in the Open pace.

In an abbreviated field of six, Topville Cadillac left alertly from post three to grab a pocket seat behind the betting favorite, American Girl and Trace Tetrick. Can't Touch This and John DeLong were next in line third while Wild Wanda and Ricky Macomber Jr. were following intently in fourth.

American Girl carved out fractions of :26.1 and :54.4 while the field remained in straight alignment down the backside. DeLong tipped Can't Touch This to the outside to make her bid at the leader and Sam Widger and Aux D Lox Bluegrass quickly grabbed the cover at the three-quarter clocking in 1:22.4. American Girl was able to hold off Can't Touch This but her biggest threat was still in the pocket.

Wrenn utilized the Hoosier Park passing lane and Topville Cadillac used a :27.1 quarter to win in a tight, three-horse photo. American Girl held on gamely for second place honors while Can't Touch This rounded out the trifecta.

Slightly dismissed at the betting windows, Topville Cadillac returned $18.80 at the betting windows.

Trained by Alvin Miller, the four-year-old daughter of Rockin Image-Topville Cyberwave recorded her third win from six seasonal outings. A former Indiana Sires Stakes Champion, Topville Cadillac has now amassed $230,659 in lifetime purse earnings for owners Ted Comerford, Twila Harts and Alvin Miller.
