Stride Of Pride busted out of jail at the top of the lane and went on to capture his second straight victory in Saturday’s $20,000 Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.
Stride Of Pride was third into the final turn but in tight quarters along the cones. When Ronnie Wrenn Jr. angled him wide off the pylons, the 5-year-old Manhardt-Apple B gelding brushed past Reggiano, who raced well first over and downed him by a neck in 1:50.3. Rock The Nite shot the Lightning Lane for show.
Ron Burke trains Stride Of Pride, who extended his career bankroll to $146,627, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi, LLC and RTC Stables.
Mike Wilder and Wrenn each collected three wins on the 13-race card. (The Meadows)
