Wild Wild Western made the top with an uncovered move and found the wire just in time in Friday's $16,200 Open Handicap Pace at The Meadows.
Wild Wild Western was third when Tony Hall sent him after the leader, Macadoodledoo. The 5-year-old son of Western Ideal-Caila Fra cleared handily but was pressured late by Carolina Beach in the Lightning Lane. Wild Wild Western downed that rival by a neck in 1:51.3 while longshot The Wall rallied for show.
Norm Parker trains the winner, who lifted his lifetime bankroll to $269,229, for Jacobs Creek Racing, Andrew Altobelli and John Deters. It was one of four wins for Hall on the 13-race card.
Live racing at The Meadows resumes Wednesday when the program features a trio of rich carryovers: $4,254.49 in the Pick 5 (race 8); $3,068.87 in the final-race Super Hi-5; $2,792.64 in the Early Pick 4 (race 4). First post is 12:45 PM.--By Evan Pattak/Meadows Standardbred Owners Association
