Jewels Forreal upsets; Karen Fread wins three
« Return to News
Jewels Forreal stalked her stablemate, McDazzle, from the pocket, then roared past in the Lightning Lane to spring an 8-1 upset in Tuesday's $18,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.
McDazzle, who was bidding to extend her winning streak to four, turned back a stern third-quarter challenge from Easy Three. But that effort may have weakened her, as the 3-year-old Jewels Forreal had little trouble downing her 4-year-old stablemate by 1/2 length for Mike Wilder in 1:54.2 over a "good" surface. Keystone Riptide completed the ticket.
Ron Burke trains Jewels Forreal, a daughter of So Surreal-Dandy's Jewel who lifted her lifetime bankroll to $169,313, for Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.
Trainer Karen Fread enjoyed a triple on the 13-race card. (The Meadows)
