An upstart in the field of elite distaff pacers, Real Amor hardly was intimidated as she moved first-over to victory—her third straight—in Monday's $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap at The Meadows.
After trainer Brewer Adams claimed Real Amor for Adams Racing LLC for $10,000 on Jan. 22, she won her first start for her new connections in a conditioned event. Against tougher on Monday, she rolled from fourth for Mike Wilder and scored in 1:54.1, four lengths better than Shine N Shimmer. Blissful Romance rallied from last for show.
Real Amor, a 6-year-old daughter of Real Artist-Sweet Amor, extended her career bankroll to $215,215.
Dave Palone drove six winners—three for trainer Ron Burke—on the 15-race card while Wilder carved out a four-bagger. (The Meadows)
