Pace Baby Pace won a spirited stretch-long duel with Diamondtequilashot and captured Tuesday's $17,900 Filly & Mare Open Handicap Pace at The Meadows.
Pace Baby Pace idled outside before grabbing the point, where Dave Palone was able to give her a 30 second-quarter breather. That left the 4-year-old daughter of Sweet Lou-Breakheart Pass with plenty in the tank to down Diamondtequilashot by a head in 1:52.3. Beach Bar completed the ticket.
It was the eighth win this year for Pace Baby Pace and lifted her career earnings to $174,961 for trainer Ron Burke and owners Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.
Jim Pantaleano and Burke each collected three wins on the 13-race card.
Live racing at The Meadows continues Wednesday when the 13-race program features a $54,566.34 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 12:45 PM.
