The finish of the $85,000 Indiana Sires Stakes for three-year-old filly pacers looked a lot different than the start. Letme Fly Low and Ricky Macomber Jr. were near the back of the pack at the start, before zooming to the front and winning the title in 1:51.3, a new lifetime mark Sat. Sept. 1.
Starting from post eight, Letme Fly Low didn’t have many options at the start and chose to float over to the back of the pack while Dee Rocks and Trace Tetrick rolled to the front for a first quarter in :26.3. The pace quickly slowed through middle fractions and Macomber had Letme Fly Low in the flow of traffic on the outside ready for one final burst of speed in the stretch. Letme Fly Low rallied home with a quick final panel in :27.3 to earn the win by one length over It’s Time For Fun and Brandon Bates, who were also flying late from the back to finish second. Voom Or Bang and John DeLong rounded out the top three spots.
“She gave the performance I expected,” noted driver Ricky Macomber Jr. in a Hoosier Park press release. “The half helped her a lot in this trip, but she’s just getting better with every start.”
Letme Fly Low was a slight upset, paying $14.40, $6.00 and $3.60 across the board. The Rockin Image filly now has six wins in 17 starts this year for Trainer Alvin Miller and more than $134,000 in career earnings for owners Ted Comerford, Twila Harts, James Lee and Miller.
Letme Fly Low is the first foal from the Cam’s Card Shark mare Schoolofcardknocks. She has a yearling filly by Always A Virgin named Call Me Garlic.
