Let’s Go Endofaera, Jada Caroline shine in Indiana Sires Stakes

Anderson, IN — Let’s Go Endofaera and Jada Caroline turned in lifetime-best efforts in their respective second-round Indiana Sires Stakes divisions for 3-year-old pacing fillies on Saturday (June 15) at Harrah’s Hoosier Park.

Let’s Go Endofaera and driver John DeLong left from post two as the 2-5 favorite in the first of two $48,500 splits, and they secured the pocket position early as All JK (Trace Tetrick) led to the first quarter in :27.2. The order of the field of six remained unchanged on the backstretch, with All JK taking the field to the half in :55.1. Entering the final turn with Defining Moment (Marvin Luna) looking to move from third, DeLong edged the bettor’s choice off of the rail as All JK took the field to three-quarters in 1:23.2.

Let’s Go Endofaera quickly came to call spinning for home, pulling within a half-length of All JK as the fillies hit the top of the stretch. All JK refused to go quietly in the lane, but Lets Go Endofaera surged home with a :26.2 final quarter to grab the victory by three parts of a length in 1:50.1. Ponda Superb (Mike Oosting) rallied for the third spot at big odds.

Let’s Go Endofaera remains perfect on the season following a 1:50.1 lifetime-best effort.

In the second division, Jada Caroline shot off the gate from post five to take the field of six to the quarter in :26.3 with Atlee Bender in the bike. The pace remained hot on the backstretch with 4-5 favorite Lyin’ Eyes (Joey Putnam) moving from third to take charge at the half in :54.2. After Lyin’ Eyes cleared entering the far turn, Teelatini (DeLong) took her shot first-over and pulled alongside the leader at three-quarters in 1:23 while Jada Caroline stalked from third.

Turning for home, Lyin’ Eyes turned away the challenge of Teelatini with Jada Caroline swinging wide off the pylons from third. Storming home in :26.3, Jada Caroline powered to the front of the field, crossing the wire 1-1/2 lengths clear of Lyin’ Eyes in 1:49.4. Teelatini held sway for third. Jada Caroline paid $4.40 as the 6-5 second choice.
