There were two divisions for freshmen filly pacers in the second week of harness racing prelims in the Maryland Sire Stakes at Ocean Downs.
 
Driver Art Stafford Jr. picked up the assignment behind Tell Me The Truth (Total Truth) giving her her first lifetime win in the 1:58 wire to wire mile with Bad Bitty up for second. Kevin Lare trains for owners Frank Chick and Julie Meirs. The breeders are Concord Stud Farm and Julie Meirs.
 
In the second split HS Shauna (Up Front Charlie) gained the lead from post 6 out of the gate holding off the favorite Miss Choptank stopping the clock in 1:57. Roger Plante Jr. was in the bile for trainer Steve LeBlanc and owner/breeder Cary Grady.
 
Judge Bob ( Great George Two) made his first lifetime start a winning one, coming from seventh at the half to taking a half-length lead over the favorite Uncle Ike in the two year old trotting colts and geldings. Jonathan Roberts was between the wheels for trainer Megan Roberts and owner/breeders Wm. B. Roberts, Graham Grace Stables and M & W Stables.
 
Maryland Sire Stakes continue Monday Aug. 21 with the freshmen pacing colts and geldings and the trotting fillies.
