Coffee Addict outdueled Medusa in the stretch to score a narrow victory in Monday's $22,500 Filly & Mare Not Listed Preferred/Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.
Hammered down to 1-2, Coffee Addict re-took the lead for Jim Pantaleano past the quarter and enjoyed a much-needed :29.1 second-panel breather. That served her well late, when she was able to hold off the first-over Medusa by a nose in 1:52.4. Early leader Tipitina saved show.
Norm Parker trains Coffee Addict, a 6-year-old daughter of Dragon Again-Kahlua Queen who now boasts $452,529 in career earnings, for James Clarke, Sr. and Andrew Altobelli.
Dave Palone piloted four winners and Eric Goodell three on the 15-race card. (The Meadows)
