Icanflylikeanangel flew to a front-end victory in a career-best 1:53 in Tuesday's $17,900 Open Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
After the winner was pressured to a demanding 26.4 opening panel, Mike Wilder was able to give him a 29.3 second-quarter breather. With that, the 6-year-old Archangel-Fox Valley London gelding easily thwarted the first-over challenge of Rising MVP and downed the pocket-sitting Lady's Dude by 2-3/4 lengths. Classicality finished third.
Randy Bendis trains Icanflylikeanangel, who now boasts career earnings of $361,116, and owns with Pollack Racing LLC.
Ronnie Wrenn, Jr., trainer Ron Burke and Wilder each collected a pair of victories on the 13-race card.
Live racing at The Meadows continues Wednesday when the program features a $1,748.20 carryover in the Pick 5 (race 2) and a $1,156.29 carryover in the Super Hi-5 (race 13). First post is 12:45 PM.--By Evan Pattak/Meadows Standardbred Owners Association)
