Lyons Sentinel got a good workout in her final start en route to the Breeders Crown eliminations next week, turning in a 1:52.2 victory in winning her $57,600 division of the Simpson Stakes for 2-year-old pacing fillies on Wednesday afternoon (Oct. 9) at Harrah's Philadelphia.
The $54,100 first division of the Simpson filly trotting stake went to Tricky Sister, a daughter of Trixton-Pay Me Sister who added a third straight win on the engine in 1:57, easily a lifetime best.
