Casie Coleman's two-year-old trainees dominated Mohawk Racetrack's qualifying session on Saturday morning winning eight of the 10 dashes.

L Dees Lioness turned in the fastest mile of the day with a 1:56.4 effort. The Somebeachsomewhere-L Dees Val filly swept to command from third after the :29.4 opening quarter and began to draw away from the field as she passed the half in :59.3 and three-quarters in 1:28.3. She extended her lead to 14 lengths in the stretch with a :28.1 final frame.

Lawrence Dumain of Pine Bush, New York owns and bred L Dees Lioness, who also won her first qualifier in 1:59.3 on June 23.

Among Coleman's winners was See And Ski, from the first crop of Somebeachsomewhere out of the half-million earning Artsplace mare Must See. New York's Jeffrey Snyder purchased the half-brother to Well Said ($2,690,820, 1:47.3), winner of the 2009 Pepsi North America Cup, Meadowlands Pace and Little Brown Jug, for $120,000 at the 2010 Harrisburg Sale. See And Ski used :27.4 final quarter speed to come from off-the-pace to win his qualifying debut in 1:57 flat.

Lucan Hanover converted from the pocket to win his second qualifier in 1:57.3 for Coleman. The Western Ideal-Lauren Order colt is a half-brother to Lawgiver Hanover, who took a new mark of 1:52.2 in a New York Sire Stake division at Yonkers Raceway last night. Lucan Hanover was purchased for $47,000 at Harrisburg in 2010 by West Wins Stable of Cambridge, Ont. and Steve Calhoun of Chatham, Ont.

Coleman's other winners were fillies Southwind Siren (Dragon Again-Southwind Solara) in 1:59.1; Miss Lauren (Cams Card Shark-Fox Valley Evanna) in 1:58; Social Scene (American Ideal-On The Catwalk) in 1:57.2; and colts Meetbehindthebarn (Western Terror-Meet Me Later) in 1:58.2; and Vegas Vacation (Bettors Delight-Dont You Smile) in 2:00.

Also winning their qualifiers were colts Moe Rocks (Rocknroll Hanover-Armbro Maureen) in 1:57.3 for conditioner Ron Adams, and Pat Fletcher trainee Dreamfair Epic (Somebeachsomewhere-Lady Joanna) in 2:00.1.

Moe Rocks, who has now posted back-to-back qualifying wins, is a full-brother to Open mare Maureen Rocks and half-sibling to French Panicure ($997,902) and Grin Some More ($607,146). He was a $50,000 yearling purchased at the 2011 Lexington Selected Sale by Dale Towle of Leamington, Ont. and Ronald Haskell of Windsor, Ont.

The debuting Dreamfair Epic is a half-brother to millionaire Stonebridge Regal and was purchased for $50,000 at the 2011 Forest City Sale by John Lamers of Ingersoll, Ont.
