Amelias Courage A stalked the leader from the pocket, then blew by in the Lightning Lane to capture Tuesday’s $20,000 Filly & Mare Open Handicap Pace at The Meadows.
Amelia’s Courage A was making her fifth domestic start since owner Thomas Mattingly and trainer Richard Perfido imported her from Australia, and she showed just how well she’s adjusted. When Dan Rawlings pointed her inside, the 5-year-old daughter of Courage Under Fire-American Dreamer shot past Touchamatic and scored in a career-best 1:51.3. Dark Force rallied for second, beaten a neck, while McDazzle finished third.
With the win, Amelia’s Courage A boasts a lifetime bankroll of $122,540.
Mike Wilder collected four victories on the 13-race card — including a pair for trainer Jason Robinson — giving him eight over the past two programs. (MSOA)
