French Moni earned the lion's share of the francs with a front-end victory in Wednesday's feature at The Meadows, a $13,500 conditioned trot.
French Moni grabbed the lead for Jim Pantaleano in a contested 27.2 opening panel and had to repel the first-over challenge of Try Try Again, the 1-2 favorite. The 5-year-old son of Love You-Touch Of Money slowed appreciably in the lane, getting the last quarter in 31. But that was good enough to down My Indiana by 1-1/2 lengths in 1:55.3, with Joey third.
Scott Betts trains French Moni, who extended his career bankroll to $111,019, for Timothy Betts and Stephen Moss.
Live racing at The Meadows resumes Saturday when the card features four Pennsylvania Sires Stake championships — each worth $253,000 — for 3-year-olds. First post is 1:05 PM. (The Meadows)
