Big And Little powered to the lead past the quarter but had to dig in late to preserve his victory in Tuesday's $15,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
Once he assumed the lead for Wilbur Yoder, Big And Little was strong enough to repel the challengers outside. However, he needed plenty of determination to hold off the late charge of Call To Post, who erased all but a nose of a 4 1/2-length deficit in the Lightning Lane. Therapeutic earned show in Tuesday's feature, which went in 1:54.1.
