The Robert Taylor Stable scored wins in both divisions of the $11,000 Misnaughtybynature Series Wednesday, May 4 at Harrah’s Hoosier Park. The first leg of the series is for filly trotters and is named after former Indiana Sires Stakes standout Msnaughtybynature who was campaigned out of the Wrenn Stable.
Taylor kicked off the night in the first race with Luv Lorelei. Starting from post four, Taylor placed the sophomore filly in the two-hold behind Bluebird Dove and Peter Wrenn before Swan Lilly and LeWayne Miller took over before the half in :56.3.
Around the final turn, Taylor moved Luv Lorelei to the outside and got the top spot midway through the stretch. However, Bluebird Dove had a final kick up the inside to move up late, but Luv Lorelei held on by a neck in 1:53.3, a new career mark. Swan Lilly finished third.
Luv Lorelei was the favorite of the field, paying $3.60 for the win. The Muscle Massive filly is owned by Burt Paddock and Kyle Hupfer. Larry Troyer bred the filly, who earned her first win of 2022 in her second start. Overall, she has five career wins and more than $100,000 in earnings.
Luv Lorelei is from the first Indiana crop of Muscle Massive. She was a $9,500 purchase from the Michiana Classic Yearling Sale.
The Taylor Stable also connected in the second division with Jusmakinyalook, driven by Jordan Ross. Starting from post four, Jusmakinyalook got away third as Swan Trixie and Peter Wrenn rallied from the outside to take over the lead at the quarter in :28.2. Ross moved Jusmakinyalook to the outside at the half in :58.3 and held her ground around the turn before moving away from the field in the stretch. The Pinetucky filly trotted home in :27.1, scoring the win by one and three-quarter lengths in 1:55.1, also a new lifetime mark. Swan Trixie finished second over GV Sanderfuh and James Yoder for third.
Jusmakinyalook was the favorite, paying $2.80 for the win. She is owned by Devon Miller and was bred by John Stoll. Jusmakinyalook was one of seven foals by Pinetucky that were sold as yearlings in 2020. She brought the highest price of the lot through the ring, fetching a price of $10,500 at the Michiana Classic Yearling Sale. The lightly raced freshman is now two for two in 2022 and is nearing $100,000 in earnings.
