Snubbed by bettors in favor of her stablemate, Unefoisdansmavie brushed wide in the lane to capture Tuesday's $20,000 Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows at an uncharacteristic 6-1.
Unefoisdansmavie was the favorite in each of her last three races, but when she was matched Tuesday against the red-hot Summer Indian — they raced as separate wagering interests — players made him the 1-2 selection. But Summer Indian tired in the stretch on the "good” surface while the fresher of the Ron Burke trainees zipped by for Tony Hall to score in 1:55.4. Count Me In shot the Lightning Lane for second, a length back, with the first-over No Doze third.
Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Jack Piatt III own Unefoisdansmavie, a 6-year-old daughter of Revenue S-Peace To The World who now boasts $375,317 in career earnings.
Dave Palone had five winners and Burke four on the 15-race card while Brett Miller and Mike Wilder each enjoyed a triple. (The Meadows)
