JJ Endofanera made her racing debut a winning effort Wednesday, June 30 at Harrah’s Hoosier Park. The freshman pacer brought home the win in 1:55.3 with driver Trace Tetrick at the controls.
Starting from post two as the favorite of the field, JJ Endofanera got away third as Miss Major Hunt and LeWayne Miller established the early pace of :27.4 and :58.1. Heading into the final turn, Tetrick moved the JK Endofanera filly out and proceeded to close in on the leaders and take control in the stretch.
JJ Endofanera led throughout the stretch as She Means Business and Michael Oosting came rolling home with a big stride late in the race. But JJ Endofanera was able to hold on for the win by a neck over She Means Business. Cats Image and Ricky Macomber recovered after a break before the start to move in for third.
JJ Endofanera is trained by Brian Brown. Bred by 3 Brothers Stables of New York, the filly is owned by Country Club Acres, Kirk Nichols, Milton Leeman and VIP Internet Stable LLC. She utilized two qualifiers at Delaware, Ohio to prepare for her win at Harrah’s Hoosier Park.
