Trailing by nine lengths after a quarter, Ohio invader Sea Shadows launched a relentless uncovered move that carried her to her fifth straight victory in Tuesday’s $20,000 Filly & Mare Open Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

Once Kurt Sugg got her in gear, the 4-year-old daughter of Shadow Play-Cameron D Art collared Touchamatic in deep stretch and downed her by a half-length in 1:50.1. McDazzle rallied for show.
