The Rodney Dangerfield of the field, Cyrus Seelster outperformed his odds in Tuesday's Here We Go Again Pace at The Meadows, capturing his third straight win. Dungeon Dragon and TSM Warhol T also took $15,000 second-leg divisions in the series for 3-year-old colts and geldings.
Dave Palone piloted six winners, including Dungeon Dragon, on the 15-race card. Although Cyrus Seelster fashioned a front-end victory in his series opener, he was sent off from the rail Tuesday at a middling 7-1. Trainer/driver Ed McNeight Jr. and Cyrus Seelster waited patiently behind the dueling leaders, Rage N Ryan and Doctor RJ, then poured through the Lightning Lane to score in 1:53.1. Rage N Ryan finished second, 3/4 lengths back, while Luke Henry rallied for show.
