Classicality dominated The Meadows’ elite trotters for the second straight week when he roared to the front and scored in 1:52.4, matching his career best, in Thursday’s $20,000 Preferred Handicap.
Classicality was parked for most of the opening half, but he easily repelled the first-over challenge of Boy Meets Girl K and drew off late for Brian Zendt, defeating Tricky Nick by 2 1/4 lengths. Boy Meets Girl K, a 26-1 long shot, was a game third.
Lisa Dunn owns and trains Classicality, a 7-year-old Classic Photo-Penn Worthy Lane gelding who now boasts a lifetime bankroll of $420,682.
Aaron Merriman piloted three winners on the 12-race card.
