« Return to News
Stride Of Pride captured his third straight win, this one as impressive as the previous two, in Saturday’s $20,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.
Stride Of Pride was stalking Dapper Dude from the pocket when Dave Palone sent him wide for the drive. The 4-year-old Manhardt-Apple B gelding blew by Dapper Dude and drew off late to down his rival by 2-1/4 lengths in 1:51. Happy Andyversary was a ground-saving third.
It was the fifth win in the last six starts for Stride Of Pride with a combined victory margin of 16-1/2 lengths. Ron Burke trains him for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and RTC Stables.
Burke enjoyed a four-bagger on the 12-race card while Jim Pantaleano and Palone each fashioned a triple.
