Automatic Slims, who last week pulled the pocket early en route to victory, used the same move with the same result Friday as he captured his fourth straight in the $18,000 Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.
Automatic Slims was sitting comfortably behind Visible Gold when Brett Miller sent him after the lead before the three-quarters. The 8-year-old son of Bettor's Delight-Natchitoches made short work of Visible Gold and held off Eddie Sweat to defeat him by 1-1/4 lengths in 1:56 on a "good” surface. I'm Banksy rallied for show.
