Tricky Nick roared from the pocket at the top of the lane, surged past the leader, IC Caviar, and went on to capture Monday's feature at The Meadows, a $12,700 Conditioned Trot.
Although IC Caviar enjoyed a fairly comfortable 57.4 on the point, he was no match for the late power of Tricky Nick, who defeated him by 3/4 lengths in 1:56 for Dan Rawlings. Favorite Mac Deeno experienced road problems en route to his third-place finish.
Richard Perfido trains Tricky Nick, an 8-year-old Band's Gold Chip-Broader Ambition gelding who lifted his lifetime bankroll to $316,756, for Thomas Mattingly.
Bob Key enjoyed a big Monday, collecting three wins — and two places finishes — with horses he owns and bred. Jim Pantaleano fashioned a triple on the 13-race card.--By Evan Pattak/Meadows Standardbred Owners Association
