Cherry Peep quarter-poled to the top and was untouchable from there, scoring an easy victory in Wednesday’s feature at The Meadows, a $10,800 conditioned trot.
Mike Wilder swept the front three and finished with five victories, winning a nifty half the 10-race card. Jim Pantaleano piloted three winners.
Although Cherry Peep hadn’t raced since March 11, Aaron Merriman confidently sent her to the point from fourth. The 5-year-old daughter of Conway Hall-Jenny On The Block shrugged off the first-over challenge of Tequila Talkin and triumphed in 1:56. Early leader Cantab Lindy was second, 1 1/4 lengths back, while Tequila Talkin saved show.
Andy Rickert trains Cherry Peep, who extended her lifetime bankroll to $175,948, and owns with Corey Hendricks and Nicole Stahl. (MSOA)
