Trustworthy Kid took his time reaching the lead but was unassailable once he got there, cruising to victory in Tuesday’s feature at The Meadows, a $13,000 conditioned trot.
Trustworthy Kid was looped from the gate and had to work hard to make the point in a :27.4 opening panel. But when Brian Zendt gave him a :29.1 second-quarter breather, he shrugged off the first-over challenge of Keystone Chester and prevailed in 1:54. Classic Banker was second, three-quarters of a length back, while Chef Lee finished a ground-saving third.
