Art Of Norma charged three wide through the final turn and had just enough racetrack to overtake the leader, Strawb’s Chippie N, and capture Tuesday’s co-feature at The Meadows, an $11,500 Filly & Mare Conditioned Pace.
Art Of Norma moved second-over and had plenty of pace when Brady Brown sent her wide for the drive. But could she rally over the sloppy surface and catch the leader? The 5-year-old daughter of Art Official-Up Front Norma did just that, defeating Strawb’s Chippie N by a length in 1:54.2, with Pappy Rocks third.
Paul Kennedy trains Art Of Norma, who lifted her career bankroll to $138,826, and owns with Keith Pippi.
In Tuesday’s companion feature, an $11,500 Filly & Mare Conditioned Trot, Broadway Kabam outkicked Sophia Lia to score for Shawn Johnston, trainer Fred Uber Jr. and owners Jodi Martin, Kaylee Martin and Nicole Uber.
Dave Palone piloted four winners on the 13-race card, including a pair for trainer Ron Burke. (The Meadows)
