Always B Miki filly too good in Kindergarten Classic

15 November 2021

The Chris Ryder trained Niki Hill continued her outstanding freshman season with an easy win in the $222,111 Kindergarten Classic Final for 2-year-old pacing fillies at The Meadowlands on Saturday.

In command by the half-way mark, Niki Hill and regular driver Dexter Dunn kept Treacherous Dragon at bay in the straight to score by a comfortable one and a half lengths, with almost five lengths back to the third placed horse.

The daughter of Always B Miki has now won eight of her nine starts this year, and with earnings of $733,817 she is the richest 2-year-old pacer in North America in 2021.

A $155,000 Lexington Select Yearling Sale purchase, Niki Hill is out of the Bettor’s Delight mare Road Bet and is a half to the millionaire pacer Cattlewash.
