Run And Tell Pap, who broke stride last week with victory in sight, had no problem holding the lead Monday at The Meadows when he drew off to a facile win in the $20,000 Preferred Trot.
Run And Tell Pap used his quick speed to grab the early lead in each of his four most recent starts only to come away without a victory. He snapped that frustrating streak Monday when he seized the lead for Dave Palone and and jogged home over a sloppy surface in 1:54.4, 2 3/4 lengths better than the ground-saving TSM Photo Bugger. Fox Valley Smarty was third.
Ron Burke trains the 5-year-old High Falls-Adele's Jade gelding, who now boasts $284,511 in career earnings, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and M1 Stable. It was one of five wins on the 14-race card for Palone. (The Meadows)
