The Linda Toscano trainee Hypnotic Tale (David Miller) won the 3-year-old filly pacing division in 1:53.1.  Owned by Ronald Mario, the Hypnotic Blue Chip sired filly sat patiently in the pocket then wore down the competition at the wire.  Hurrikane Empress (Yannick Gingras) held on for second while Cruzinforavictory (Frank Milby) finished third.
