Pancleefandarpels (Jordan Stratton) won the Filly and Mare Open Handicp Pace, working out a second-ver trip from post five. Symphony in Motion (Brent Holland), who failed to pick up her feet as the choice a week ago, owned the early lead here. She showed the way through intervals of :28, :57.4 and 1:26.2, while dealing with the first-up intrusion of Elusive Prey (Ryan Anderson).
Pancleefandarpels swung wide in the lane and busted the distaff derby wide open. She strolled home by 2 1/2 lengths in a season\'s-best 1:55.2. Twin B Tiara (Greg Grimsore) was the best of the rest, with JK Pure Pearl (Jason Bartlett), Elusive Prey and Symphony in Motion completing the cashers.
For Pancleefandarpels, a 5-year-old daughter of Noble Ability trained by Erv Miller for Peter Pan Stables, she paid $9 (third choice) for her second win in a half-dozen \'09 efforts. The victress led a $70 exacta and $654 triple.
The week\'s featured trot saw Princetonian (Holland) pocket-protect his way to happiness.
Once he saw the passing lane, he passed. Princetonian won by a length in a seasonal-best 1:58.1,with Beach Nut Brand (Jeff Gregory) closing for second. Armbro Aristocrat (Mark Gingrich), 7-10 fave American Lane (Manzi) and Summertime Yankee grabbed the small change.
