Icanflylikeanangel relentlessly pressured the leader, Final Breath, passed him in mid-stretch and went on to capture Monday’s $20,000 Open Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
Icanflylikeanangel was fifth past the half when Mike Wilder sent him first-up. Despite having to negotiate a “good” surface, the 5-year-old Archangel-Fox Valley London gelding wore down Final Breath and prevailed in 1:54, matching his career best. Whats The Word shot the Lightning Lane for second, 1 1/4 lengths back, while Final Breath saved show.
Randy Bendis trains Icanflylikeanangel, who extended his career bankroll to $291,776, and owns with Pollack Racing LLC.
Tony Hall and Wilder each piloted four winners on the 13-race card. (MSOA)
