Blue Ivy ended her outstanding sophomore season with five straight wins. But how would the daughter of Captaintreacherous-All Blue perform in her 4-year-old debut following a layoff of nearly 10 weeks?
The answer: just fine, thank you, as Blue Ivy shot the Lightning Lane to capture Wednesday’s $18,000 Filly & Mare Open Handicap Pace at The Meadows.
Lakeisha Hall did the heavy lifting on the front end, with Blue Ivy stalking from the pocket. Once Aaron Merriman pointed Blue Ivy inside, she blew by Lakeisha Hall and downed her by two lengths in 1:53.2 over a “good” surface. Brown Brinny was a ground-saving third.
Bill Bercury trains Blue Ivy, who vaulted over $200,000 in career earnings, for Renee Bercury.
Mike Wilder enjoyed a huge Wednesday, piloting six winners on the 13-race card. (MSOA)
