Medusa sets OMP track record at The Meadows

Medusa zipped to the front from post 6, held off the late charge of Set Me Up and scored in 1:50—fastest ever by an older mare at The Meadows — in Monday's $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Pace.
Medusa suffered narrow losses in her two most recent outings when she stalked the leader from the pocket and couldn't find the Lightning Lane soon enough. On Monday, Tony Hall and the 5-year-old daughter of Bettor's Delight-Mythical assured that wouldn't happen again when they took control and downed the pocket-sitting Set Me Up by a neck. Spreester was third. The time erased the previous mark of 1:50.2 held jointly by Betterluvnexttime and Continual Velocity.
Randy Bendis trains Medusa, who now boasts $296,442 in lifetime earnings, and owns with Tom Pollock.
