Summer Charm one of 6 wins for Hall
« Return to News
Hammered down to 1-5, Summer Charm justified the support with a front-end victory — her third straight — in Tuesday’s $17,900 Filly & Mare Open Handicap at The Meadows. It was one of six wins for Tony Hall — including three for trainer Scott Betts — on the 13-race card.
Summer Charm scored in 1:52, holding off a serious late challenge from Diamondtequilashot that fell 1/2 length short. Newsday was a ground-saving third.
Betts trains Summer Charm, a 4-year-old daughter of Bettor’s Delight-Lover Of Art who now boasts career earnings of $369,100, for Tim Betts, Nick Catalano, Keith Pippi and Brookside Stables.
Tuesday’s much-anticipated Super Hi-5, with its six-figure carryover and mandatory payout, generated a pool exceeding $470,000. When Entranced won at 18-1 and 70-1 bomb Wingnut Dinger finished fourth, a rich payoff was assured. Indeed, multiple winners each collected $30,692.02.--By Evan Pattak
