M Ms Dream turned in another dominant performance in the first of two $47,000 Indiana Sires Stakes divisions for three-year-old trotting fillies at Harrah’s Hoosier Park on Wednesday, July 20 to go a perfect four-for four this season. Jusmakinyalook and Jordan Ross turned in an impressive performance of their own to capture the second division by a length in 1:53.4.
Leaving from post four, M Ms Dream went straight to the front and went uncontested through splits of :27.3, :57.2 and 1:26.3. Stopping the timer in 1:53.1, M Ms Dream finished nearly three lengths in front of the pocket-sitting Luv Lorelei and Robert Taylor while Bluebird Dove, with Peter Wrenn, trotted evenly for third.
Using a :26.3 closing kick, M Ms Dream recorded her fourth straight victory and remains undefeated in stakes action this season for trainer Henry Graber Jr. She equalled her lifetime best mark.
