Tom’s OK Lady enjoyed a comfortable first half on the lead, then drew away from the field late to capture Friday’s $25,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
Hammered down to 2-5, Tom’s OK Lady floated to the front for Dave Palone and reached the half in a leisurely :59.1 on a surface rated "good."From there, she encountered no serious challenge as she scored in 1:57.2, 2 1/2 lengths better than the rallying I’m Justa Lady, with Whotookwhat third. The finish represented a 1-2-3 sweep by daughters of Inquirer.
Ron Burke trains Tom’s OK Lady, a 7 year old who won for the 42nd time in 96 career starts, for Burke Racing Stable, M1 Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Bethann Palone.
Palone and Tony Hall each drove three winners on the 15-race card. (The Meadows)
