Shedding his cover before the three-quarters, Lonesome Attack powered through the lane to capture his second straight victory in Wednesday's $22,500 winners-over $10,000 life/Preferred Handicap pace at The Meadows.
Hammered down to 3-5 despite jumping two classes, Lonesome Attack was unhurried early before unleashing his potent late kick over a "good” surface for Brett Miller. The 5-year-old On The Attack-Lady Lonesome gelding scored in 1:53.2 over the rallying JJ Gladiator and Risk Management.
