Teenage Paige and Lightning Treasure won their respective $16,000 divisions of the opening leg of the Night Styles Series for 4-year-old mares Thursday night at the Meadowlands.
Teenage Paige, a daughter of Real Desire, closed late to win for driver Tim Tetrick in 1:52. Moving to the lead past the three-quarters, Teenage Paige then had enough left to hold off Get That Cheese. Favored Milly Me N finished third.
Eric Ell trains the winner for owners Ken Wood, William Dittmar Jr. and Stephen Iaquinta. With her third win of the year in four starts, Teenage Paige increased her career earnings to more than $92,000.
Ron Pierce directed Lightning Treasure through a two-hole trip before closing late to win the second split in 1:52.4. Perfect Sport and Stacked Deck finished second and third, respectively.
Lightning Treasure, a daughter of Western Ideal, is trained by Tony Mannino for the Lightning Stable. The mare also won for the third time this year, increasing her earnings to nearly $70,000. (Meadowlands)
