Macadoodledoo threw down a sizzling :54.3 back half but still was all out late to secure his victory in Friday’s $17,900 Open Handicap Pace at The Meadows.
Macadoodledoo zipped to the front from post 4 for Ronnie Wrenn Jr. but couldn’t draw away from Carolina Beach and Rock Candy, stalking from second and third, respectively. But Rock Candy’s Lightning Lane charge fell a head short, and Macadoodledoo prevailed in 1:50.4. Carolina Beach finished third.
Ron Burke trains the winner, a 5-year-old Somebeachsomewhere-Pirouette Hanover gelding who vaulted over $200,000 in career earnings, for Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.
Elsewhere on Friday’s card, Dapper Dude, the personable, popular, strong-willed millionaire, faced the starter for the final time in his illustrious career. The 11-year-old chestnut son of The Panderosa-Dress To Suggest tried to go out a winner, quarter-poling to the point, but he tired and finished sixth.
Dapper Dude ends his racing career with 241 starts, 57 victories, a mark of 1:49 and just less than $1.4 million in earnings. He’ll enter stud at Harris Paint Horses & Stallion Station in Maryland. Trainer Tim Twaddle and other admirers presented the gallant gent with a retirement blanket.
Burke fashioned a five-bagger on the 13-race card while Wrenn and Aaron Merriman collected four wins and three wins, respectively. (MSOA)
