A leisurely fifth at the half, Action-Broadway unleashed a powerful uncovered bid that propelled her to the lead and on to victory in the $22,500 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot, the feature on the Tuesday card at The Meadows shortened by worsening track conditions.
 
Sent off the 4-5 favorite, Action-Broadway idled 5-1/2 lengths back before Dave Palone moved her off the cones. She gobbled up the leader, Pilgrims Stunner, and cruised home to down that rival by 3 lengths in 1:57.1. A trapped-in Digital Pix was a rallying third.
 
Virgil Morgan, Jr. trains Action-Broadway, a 4-year-old daughter of Broadway Hall-Photo With Molly whose average per-start earnings now exceed $11,228 through 32 career outings, for Ken Sommer.
 
While The Meadows was spared the brunt of the storm that targeted much of the Midwest and East, the track absorbed enough “wintry mix” to be rated “sloppy” from the outset. As track conditions deteriorated and threatened the safety of drivers and horses, The Meadows canceled races eight through 15.
 
Live racing at The Meadows resumes Wednesday with first post at 6:55 PM. (The Meadows)
