Trapped in with no hope of clearance, Lass A Rope found the Lightning Lane just in time and brushed to her second straight victory in Friday's $18,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
Glidinthruparadise moved first-over and edged past the leader, Dirty Secret, as the field straightened for home. But when Aaron Merriman pointed Lass A Rope inside, the 4-year-old daughter of Encore Encore-American Lassie had just enough time and trot to nip Glidinthruparadise by a nose in 1:55.2. Bessie completed the ticket.
