Hung on the rim for more than one-half mile, Major Nemesis nevertheless put away the formidable Windsong Leo late to spring a 14-1 upset in Monday’s $17,900 Open Handicap Pace at The Meadows.
 
Major Nemesis was seventh when Aaron Merriman tipped him off the cones, perhaps looking for cover. When none emerged, the 6-year-old Big Bad John-Nassau Loop gelding was forced to tackle the front-ending Windsong Leo without help. He advanced steadily, passed Windsong Leo near the wire and triumphed in 1:51.1. Dancin Dragon followed the cover of Major Nemesis for second, beaten a neck, while Windsong Leo saved show.

Dave Palone collected five wins on the 13-race card, including a pair for trainer Brian Brown. (The Meadows)
