New Evidence stalked Stride Of Pride from the pocket before using the Lightning Lane to perfection to complete the 6-1 upset in Friday’s $18,000 Preferred Pace at The Meadows.
Stride Of Pride had plenty of pace left turning for home but couldn’t match the :27.3 final panel of New Evidence, who prevailed in 1:52.2 over a “good” surface for Aaron Merriman. Dapper Dude also shot the Lightning Lane for second, 1 3/4 lengths back, while Stride Of Pride saved show. Herman Hagerman trains the 6-year-old Western Terror-Bouncing Hanover gelding, who lifted his career earnings to $122,630, for Northwind Farm.
With his place check, the 10-year-old Dapper Dude vaulted over $1.3 million in lifetime purses. Dave Palone, Mike Wilder and trainer Ron Burke each enjoyed a triple on the 13-race card. (The Meadows)
