Anderson, IN — Indiana’s top 2-year-old pacing colts and geldings were on display at Harrah’s Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Friday (Aug. 28) as the evening’s 14-race card featured two divisions of Indiana Sires Stakes. The colts were battling in the third round of their six round series and closed out a week’s worth of stakes action.
PBR Street Gang, with Trace Tetrick in the bike, turned in a dominant performance to capture the $42,000 first division in 1:52.2. After an uncharacteristic break in his last start, the Brian Brown trainee moved to the lead down the backside and never looked back in scoring a two length victory over a hard charging Flirtin Freddy and Michael Oosting. The 1:52.2 clocking equaled his established best. Sent off at odds of 3-1, PBR Street Gang returned $8.80 to his backers at the betting windows.
With the win, the son of JK Endofanera-Love You Always recorded his second win from five lifetime starts. Owned in partnership by Country Club Acres, Joe Sbrocco, Milton Leeman and L & H Management Services, PBR Street Gang pushed his lifetime bankroll to $40,225.
In the $42,500 second division, Brookview Bullet and Joey Putnam staged an impressive rally late in the lane to get up in the final strides of the mile to score in 1:51.2. With the win, Brookview Bullet established a new lifetime best and remained undefeated in three starts this season. Slightly dismissed at odds of 5-1, Brookview Bullet returned $12.80 to his backers at the betting windows.
Trained by Justin White, the son of Always A Virgin-Babylon Sister is owned by Eleven Star Stables. Brookview Bullet now sports a lifetime bankroll of $35,338.
Live racing will continue at Harrah’s Hoosier Park Racing & Casino on Saturday (Aug. 29). The evening’s 14-race card will feature an $18,000 Open Trot and a $10,000 guaranteed Pick-5 sequence.
