Lakeisha Hall zipped to the front from post six and powered to victory — her second straight and fourth in her last six races — in Tuesday’s (July 31) $18,000 Fillies and Mares Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.
Last week, Lakeisha Hall used a pocket trip to out-finish the leader, Fox Valley Charm. On Tuesday, their positions were reversed, but Lakeisha Hall would not let Fox Valley Charm by in the Lightning Lane, downing her by half a length in 1:51.3 for Dave Palone. McDazzle found late racing room for show.
Ron Burke trains Lakeisha Hall, a 5-year-old daughter of Third Straight and Lantana Hall who lifted her career bankroll to $548,879, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Jack Piatt II.
Palone collected four wins and Mike Wilder three on the 13-race card. (The Meadows)
