Show Runner turns pocket trip into victory
« Return to News
Show Runner stalked Skippin By from the pocket, then overtook her in the lane to capture Tuesday’s $18,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.
Skippin By worked out a seemingly comfortable 58.2 half, but she was vulnerable on the sloppy surface. The conditions suited Show Runner just fine, as she pulled the pocket for Jim Pantaleano at the top of the lane and prevailed in 1:55.1. Medusa rallied for second, a neck back, while Skippin By saved show.
Christen Pantaleano trains Show Runner, a 7-year-old daughter of Little Steven-Peace Runner who vaulted over $400,000 in career earnings, for A Piece Of The Action LLC.
Aaron Merriman collected three wins on the 12-race card.
