Unefoisdansmavie, the only mare in the field, stalked patiently from the pocket, then roared by in the Lightning Lane to capture Monday's $18,000 Preferred Trot at The Meadows.
Unefoisdansmavie, the 3-5 favorite, let Count Me In do all the heavy lifting on the lead before brushing late for Dave Palone and downing Count Me In by a half length in 1:53.3. The ground-saving Redder Than Red was third.
A 6-year-old daughter of Revenue S-Peace To The World, Unefoisdansmavie has been a model of excellence and consistency for trainer Ron Burke and owners Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Jack Piatt III. In 2012, she won nine races and $148,667; this year, she's won nine races and $148,001.
Mike Wilder drove five winners and Palone four on the 15-race card while Burke enjoyed a triple. (The Meadows)
