Dismissed at 8-1, Early Morning Call survived a demanding first quarter as well as a serious late challenge en route to victory in Wednesday’s $22,500 Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
 
Early Morning Call was parked three wide in a 28 opening quarter before making the lead. But when Terry O’Brien gave him a 31.2 second-panel breather, Early Morning Call had just enough to thwart the late rally of TW Little Kosmo and down that rival by a neck in 1:56.3 over a sloppy track. Eagle Dream finished third.
 
O’Brien and trainer Candy O’Brien own Early Morning Call, a 6-year-old Wilson Wyoming-Foxie Frenchie gelding who extended his career bankroll to $123,209.
 
Tony Hall and Eric Ledford each drove three winners on the 14-race card. (The Meadows)
