Trotslikethewind retook the lead past the quarter and made the move stand up as she captured Wednesday's $22,500 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows. Dave Palone drove three winners Wednesday, lowering to 10 his magic number to break Herve Filion's all-time North American career victory record of 15,180.
With The Meadows dark the rest of the week, Palone plans to resume his quest on Monday at The Meadows, first post 12:55 p.m.

After charging to the front for Tony Hall, Trotslikethewind found herself pocketed by Tui. The 7-year-old daughter of Pegasus Spur-Familiar Goal would have none of it. She reclaimed the front and held off the late challenge of Firstclassprincess to down that rival by 1 1/4 lengths in 1:54.1. Tui finished third.

Andy Rickert trains and owns Trotslikethewind, who now boasts $244,040 in lifetime earnings.

Brett Miller collected five wins on the 15-race card while Hall enjoyed a three-bagger. (The Meadows)
