Market Rally broke the track record for three year old trotting fillies on Wednesday night at Saratoga Casino and Raceway.

Having emerged as the top sophomore trotter amongst NY fillies in the past month, Market Rally (Cash Hall) came into Wednesday's $91,500 Sire Stake on a three race win streak since the addition of lasix.

The Ron Burke-trained filly made an early move to the lead for driver Jim Morrill Jr and the race's 1-9 betting favorite would never look back. Market Rally drew away from her competition to win in 1:55.4 over a track labeled 'good'.

The win time set a new track record for three year old fillies breaking the mark set by Munis Blue Chip (Ray Schnittker) in August of 2012.

The other $91,550 Sire Stakes on the card was won by Driving Miss Crazy and trainer-driver Gates Brunet. Driving Miss Crazy (Crazed) went wire-to-wire, hanging on to prevail in 1:57.2 at odds of 9-2.

New York Sire Stakes action will return to Saratoga next Wednesday night when two year old filly pacers square off at the Spa.

Live racing continues on Thursday night at Saratoga with a first post time set for 7:05pm.
