CHESTER, PA - 2019's Two-Year-Old Pacing Filly of the Year, Lyons Sentinel, continued her preparations for the imminent stakes season with a 1:54.3 qualifying win at Harrah's Philadelphia early Tuesday afternoon.

The daughter of Captaintreacherous, who was also last year's leading moneywinning freshman at $801,809, made a frontward move at the half and hung up successive :28 quarters to post an easy 2½ length victory, giving her now two wins and a second in preseason qualifying action. Threelyonsracing owns the Jim King Jr. trainee, who was driven as usual by Tim Tetrick.

In two-year-old qualifying action, two pacing colts tied for fastest mile of the day by winning in 1:57.2. The Somebeachsomewhere - Swinging Beauty gelding Whichwaytothebeach went down the road from the rail, stepping home in :57.2 - :28.1 for trainer/driver Roland Mallar and owners Alan Johnston, Northfork Racing Stable, and John Craig; matching that clocking was the Always B Miki - Don't Deny Me gelding Dontpassme Hanover, a pocket rocket for driver Art Stafford Jr. and trainer Mark Harder, the latter also co-owner with Rick Phillips.

In the trots for babies, speed honors went to the Bar Hopping - Up Front Annika gelding Ginger Tree Knox, who made every pole a winning one in 2:00.4 for trainer/driver Steve Cook and the partnership of Sam Beegle, Ginger Tree Ventures LLC, Double D Racing Stable and the Reber-Chasen Stable.
