Hedges Avenue A worked out a cozy pocket trip, then roared through the Lightning Lane to spring a 14-1 upset in Wednesday's feature at The Meadows, a $10,800 Conditioned Pace.
Always Giggling, the 4-5 favorite, took the field through three-quarters in a reasonable comfortable 1:24.4. But when Brady Brown pointed Hedges Avenue A inside, the 7-year-old daughter of Rock N Roll Heaven-Presidential Night was the fresher mare, downing Always Giggling by 1/2 length in 1:53.1. Greenhilldebatable completed the ticket.
J.L. Adams trains the winner for Martin Valentic, John Bednarski and Karl Malik.
Tony Hall and Chris Shaw each piloted three winners on the 13-race program.
Live racing at The Meadows resumes Friday when the 13-race program features a $34,507.17 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5 and a $1,237.97 carryover in the Early Pick 5 (race 2). First post is 12:45 PM.
