Taking advantage of a suicidal first quarter, Ole Miss waited patiently in fifth before pouncing on the leaders and capturing Tuesday's $22,500 Filly & Mare Not Listed Preferred/Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.
Do Me Honor won the duel for the early lead but had to pace in :26.3 to get there. That set the stage for the first-over move of Ole Miss, who inched away in the lane for Mike Wilder and scored in 1:55.2. Tremor Hanover was second, 2-1/4 lengths back, while Do Me Honor saved show.
Randy Bendis trains Ole Miss, a 5-year-old daughter of Art Major-Biloxi who extended her career bankroll to $247,136. Bendis also owns the mare with Mike Novosel Jr., Reed Broadway and Thomas Pollack.
Wilder drove four winners and Dave Palone three on the 16-race card.(The Meadows)
