American Ideal’s World Champion 2-year-old daughter Youaremycandygirl p,2,1:50 ($627,195) tacked an exclamation point onto a remarkable season as she drew off to a 4 1/2-length victory in the $600,000 Breeders Crown 2YO Filly Pace Final last night at Hoosier Park. (Watch Race)

The Bill Donovan-owned filly, purchased last fall at Harrisburg for $150,000 from the Concord Stud Farm, agent consignment, has now posted seven wins in nine career starts. She is both the fastest and richest of her division, giving her a clear path to year-end divisional honors.

The American Ideal-Sweet Lady Jane (Somebeachsomewhere) champion was bred by Seth Rosenfeld’s Birnam Wood Farms and is part of the “Burke Brigade,” being trained by Ron Burke and his team.

In addition to her wins in the Breeders Crown elim and final, she paced to a 1:50 World Record victory in the Red Mile’s International Stallion Stakes; a 1:50.4 score in the $500,000 She’s A Great Lady at Mohawk; and captured three New York Sire Stakes races.

Brittany congratulates her connections and wishes them all the best with this sensational filly.
