Making his second start in five days, Knocking Around wore down Lord Of Winterfell with a sustained uncovered bid to take Friday’s $18,000 Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.
Lord Of Winterfell got the jump on the field when he pulled the pocket down the backside and opened a 1 1/2-length lead. But Knocking Around gained steadily and defeated Lord of Winterfell by 2 1/2 lengths in 1:53, with Royaltyhasarrived third. David McNeight III piloted the 9-year-old Western Terror-So Completely gelding, who has earned $442,127 for trainer David McNeight, Jr. and owner Courtney McNeight.
Dave Palone and Jim Pantaleano each collected three wins on the 13-race program. (The Meadows)
