A and Gsconfusion wins the 2007 She's A Great Lady Stakes

In the $782,200 She's A Great Lady Stakes for 2-year-old pacing fillies, 2-1 second choice Thong took over the lead from 26-1 Red In The Face down the backstretch and opened up a 1 1/2-length advantage after a half in 56 seconds. Turning for home, David Miller angled 12-1 shot A and Gsconfusion out wide for the drive and drove right past Thong at the 1/4-pole, getting 3/4 in 1:24 2/5. Through the stretch, A and Gsconfusion drew off to win by 2 lengths in a time of 1:51 3/5, a new Mohawk track record for 2-year-old pacing fillies. It was just 1/2 a length back to Red In The Face in third, and 3 more back to 6-5 favorite Beachy Girl in fourth.

Winning driver David Miller said, "I left the gate just trying to fish for a hole, and there was a big two-hole, so I slid in there. It was a moderate pace and I was going along pretty easily. I didn't have to move until I was going into the last turn. She felt good the whole way. When Brian (Sears driving favorite Beachy Girl) came, he was coming slow, so I moved her and she moved with authority. She comes real strong. She was doing it so easily (the record time) kind of surprised me."
