Glidinthruparadise followed the first-over cover of Bessie, then overtook her in mid-stretch to capture her second straight victory in Tuesday’s (June 27) $20,000 Filly & Mare Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
Glidinthruparadise broke stride in three straight starts before righting the ship in her last outing, a conditioned event. On Tuesday, she looked more than comfortable with the track’s distaff trotting elite, downing Bessie by a length for trainer/driver Brian Zendt in 1:54.4. Bags For All finished third.
Lisa Dunn campaigns the 4-year-old daughter of Yankee Glide-Chowda, who extended her career bankroll to $122,753.
Elsewhere on the card, Count On Cody became harness racing’s fastest freshman colt trotter in 2017 on a five-eighths-mile track when he won at first asking in 2:00.3. Marty Wollam drove and trains the son of Full Count-Caviar Forthe Lady for Acadia Farms and G&B Racing. (The Meadows)
