McDazzle drove relentlessly first-over, grinding out a gritty victory in Tuesday’s feature at The Meadows, a $17,900 Filly & Mare Open Handicap Pace.
McDazzle got away fourth from post 7 for Ronnie Wrenn Jr. before attacking the leader, Touchamatic, with an uncovered bid. The 6-year-old daughter of Art Official-Dream McQueen put away Touchamatic in midstretch and triumphed in 1:52. The pocket-sitting Amelia’s Courage A shot the Lightning Lane for second, beaten a neck, with Hedges Avenue A third.
Ron Burke conditions McDazzle, who now has won 30 races and $363,616 lifetime, for Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.
Dave Palone piloted four winners on the 10-race card, including a pair for trainer Kevin Johnson, while Burke enjoyed a double. Bryce Brocklehurst collected two victories — one for his brother, trainer Michael Brocklehurst, one for his dad, trainer Harold Brocklehurst.
After a wild day of longshot winners on Monday’s reopening day, things settled down Tuesday, with favorites capturing seven races.
Live racing at The Meadows continues Wednesday when the 10-race program features a $9,928.54 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 12:45 p.m. (MSOA)
