Dismissed at an eye-popping 168-1, Tell Me Something moved willingly without cover and pulled off a shocking upset Thursday (May 31) at The Meadows. The winner returned $390.80 for a $2 win-place-show ticket and completed a $1,155.40 daily double payoff. No one correctly picked the trifecta, which returned a 2-of-3 payoff of $1,279.20, and not a single superfecta ticket had the winner on top, setting up a carryover.
Tell Me Something was off the board in each of her four previous 2018 starts. But in Thursday’s non-winners of a race event for fillies and mares, the daughter of Winning Mister-Cannot Tell A Lie chased on the rim for Dan Charlino, got back to the cones for a brief breather after the break of 1-9 favorite Enough Of That and scored in 1:59.3. Early leader Winning Grace was second by a neck, with Ad Hoc Hanover third. Jim Daugherty trains Tell Me Something for Michele Daugherty.
Mike Wilder piloted three winners on the 12-race card.
