Ocean CIty, MD - The $67,000 Maryland Sire Stake for three year old filly trotters went to post as race three with a large harness racing crowd in attendance at Ocean Downs.

Crystals Pistol (Cam's Rocket) with reinsman Russell Foster in the bike took control from the gate repelling a challenge early on by Diamonds Credit (Charlie De Vie), while the favorite Gaagaa Gone (Googoo Gaagaa) had to contend with a lot of road trouble from some early breakers going three deep up the backside.

When the clocked stopped in the 1:59.3 mile Crystals Pistol was able to hold off Gaagaa Gone by a head for owner -breeder Syl King Jr. and trainer Arlene Cameron.

Race five sent the colt and gelding pacers to post for their $67,000 final.

In a race where post positions changed frequently it took a three deep move up the back stretch for B T's Breeze (Nuclear Breeze) with Victor Kirby in the bike to cross the wire first in a stakes record mile of 1:54.4 for pacing geldings.

Lloyd's All In (Rusty's All In) was second and Allie's Finale (Allie's Western) was up for show. B T's Breeze is owned and trained by Bryan Truitt Jr.
