    RISING star trotter Sister Sledge did it all in last night’s $180,502 Pennsylvania Sires’ Stake for freshman filly trotters at The Meadows.

    She extended her unbeaten streak to six, completed a sweep of PASS preliminary legs and triumphed in a stake-record 1:54.1.

    In the other division of the Delmonica Hanover, as the stake is known, 11-1 Shishito rallied from well back to spring the upset.

    Throughout her winning sequence, no rival had been closer than a length to Sister Sledge at the finish.

    That was the case Wednesday as well, as she forged to the lead from the rail for Yannick Gingras and defeated the first-over Sorella by two-and-a-half lengths, with Aperfectcrystal third.

    “She has a crazy amount of speed; she hasn’t been tired yet,” Gingras said. “Today I actually was hoping a couple would leave and we could race her from behind. But nobody left, so she took things in hand.”

    The time erased the stake record of 1:55 established by Can’t I in 2016.

    The daughter of Father Patrick has banked $138,563 for trainer Ron Burke and owners Burke Racing Stable, Jason Melillo, J&T Silva-Purnell&Libby, and Weaver Bruscemi LLC. Sister

    Sledge figures to be the heavy favourite in the $250,000 PASS Championship, which is set for September 8 at Harrah’s Philadelphia.
