Trustworthy Kid continued to dominate The Meadows' trotting elite Wednesday when he scored a facile victory in the $18,000 Preferred Handicap. In five starts this year following a four-month layoff, the 8-year-old SJ's Caviar-Penn Worthy Lane gelding has rolled up three wins and two place finishes.
On Wednesday, he quarter-poled to the lead for Dave Palone and prevailed by a measured length in 1:55.2 over a "good" surface. The pocket-sitting TSM Photo Bugger was second, with Chef Lee a ground-saving third in his seasonal debut.
Lisa Dunn owns and trains Trustworthy Kid, who extended his career bankroll to $466,697.
Tony Hall, Aaron Merriman, Mike Wilder, trainer Ron Burke and Palone each enjoyed a double on the 13-race card. (The Meadows)
