Refreshed by a second-quarter breather, Fox Valley Charm blazed the back half in :55.1 over a sloppy surface to score decisively in Tuesday’s $18,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Pace at The Meadows.

Fox Valley Charm left the gate in a fury, pocketing Magic Forces rather than turning her loose to the lead, yet Aaron Merriman still was able to slow the second-panel pace to :29.2. 

From there Fox Valley Charm easily repelled the first-over thrust of Camera Lady and drew off to win in 1:52.1. Magic Forces used that pocket trip for second, 3-3/4 lengths back, while Albany Girl rallied for show.
