Harness racing Freshman pacing fillies took center stage on Saturday night at Balmoral Park as the Hosea Williams owned and trainer Lexington Lady prevailed by a length in 1:55.2 over seven rivals in the $8,140 Beecher Stake for state-breds.
 
Hustled right to the front from post position two by driver Brian Carpenter the speedy daughter of Lexington Legend--Stephie Kay was allowed to stroll through easy splits of 28.4, 59.2 & 1:27.1 while under no pressure from her rivals.
 
With plenty in reserve despite being off for five weeks prior to this start, this year's Filly Orange & Blue runner-up sprinted home in 28.1 keeping the hard charging Whiskersonkittens (Robert Smolin) and the pocket sitting Char N Marg (Casey Leonard) at bay as she recorded her eighth win in 12 career starts. Whiskersonkittens continued her late season improvement as she wound up in the bridesmaid role while Char N Marg was forced to settle for the show dough.
 
Sent off as a close second choice in the wagering at odds of 7-5 Lexington Legend returned $4.80, $4.00 & $2.20 while running her career earnings up to $62,795.
 
Lexington Lady and driver Brian Carpenter led from start to finish in Saturday's $8,140 Beecher Stake for 2yo pacing fillies.
