NYSS doubleheader set for Wednesday at Buffalo Raceway

Hamburg, NY — It will be a New York Sire Stakes doubleheader at Buffalo Raceway on Wednesday afternoon (June 26) as a big 14-race program is set for 2:30 p.m. With the Sire Stakes in town for both sexes in the sophomore trotting divisions, purses ready to be distributed on the entire day total $383,500.

In the $117,700 division for the 3-year-old trotting fillies, Sister Mary Maude, a winner of $174,636 thus far in her career, posted an eight length win at Buffalo Raceway in the NYSS as a 2-year-old. It’s been a strange start for her in 2024 as Sister Mary Maude (Crazy Wow-Perfect Mass) has finished second in all five of her starts. Trained by Ron Burke, she hopes to get out of the bridesmaid role from the rail with Joe Bongiorno scheduled to drive.

Sadbirdstillsing (Chapter Seven-Fade Into You) won the $84,000 NYSS at Yonkers on May 20 but in three recent appearances, has finished no better than third. She hopes to be ‘singing’ late for driver Jason Bartlett.

Winning Alliance (Chapter Seven-Perfect Alliance) arrives capturing six of seven starts on the campaign. She had her six-race win streak snapped on June 7 in the $57,000 NYSS at Tioga Downs where she finished three-quarters of a length behind Honey’s Sweet. Trained by Matthew Bax, Todd Ratchford is set to be aboard Winning Alliance from the four hole.

Others in the field are Hippie Shake, Shiv, Nymeria and Seven Year Itch.

There is one division for the 3-year-old colt and gelding trotters and that will carry a bounty of $119,800.

Keep Asking (Chapter Seven-Sensibility) has a NYSS victory under his belt thus far in 2024, that being a half-length score at Monticello Raceway on June 3. Keep Asking has produced $326,424 in earnings in his lifetime. The George Ducharme trainee will start from the four spot for Tyler Buter.

Sky Box (E L Titan-Goddess) drew the rail with Brett Beckwith scheduled for the ride. He is moving up from the Excelsior Series after rolling to a three length score at Monticello Raceway on June 3 in 1:57.4.

Another to keep on eye on is Super Duper Cooper (E L Titan-Pink Power) who has earned $140,457 in his career thus far. He’ll get the three hole for Bartlett.

Others in the full field of eight include Crazy Brother Jim, Inflation, Victor Laszlo, Nottingham and It Wasnt Me.

There will be four $20,000 events in the Excelsior Series and the $14,000 Class A-Open Pace for the ladies.
