Stuck in an uncharacteristic seven-race losing streak, Classicality changed tactics and snapped his skid with a rallying victory in Monday’s (July 30) $18,000 Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
Classicality performed well enough during his losing streak, missing the ticket just once while racing at or near the front. To get that elusive win, however, Brian Zendt ducked from post six and followed the live cover of PL Jerico. Classicality roared wide through the lane to score in 1:54, half a length better than long shot Dreamsteeler. PL Jerico saw his four-race winning streak end while saving show.
Lisa Dunn owns and trains Classicality, an 8-year-old Classic Photo-Penn Worthy Lane gelding who now boasts $627,852 in career earnings.
Aaron Merriman and Dave Palone each piloted three winners on the 13-race card. (The Meadows)
