Wind Of The North stalked Lady's Dude patiently from the pocket, then roared by him in the Lightning Lane to capture his second straight victory in Wednesday's $20,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
Lady's Dude turned back the first-over challenge of Barn Girl, but it took a :27.4 third panel to do it. That made him vulnerable to Wind Of The North, who downed Lady's Dude by a half-length in 1:54.2 for Aaron Merriman. Barn Girl saved show.
Bill Bercury owns and trains Wind Of The North, a 7-year-old Cantab Hall-Talk To The Wind gelding who extended his career bankroll to $852,368.
Mike Wilder collected three wins on the 12-race card while Tyler Stillings enjoyed a training/driving double. (The Meadows)
