Racing confidently down in class, Sansovina Hanover made the lead early and made it stick late in Tuesday's feature at The Meadows, a $10,400 Filly & Mare Conditioned Pace.
Jim Pantaleano didn't rush Sansovina Hanover from the gate, but when the 5-year-old daughter of Somebeachsomewhere-Shacked Up quarter-poled to the point, she had plenty in reserve to hold off Always Giggling by 1-1/4 lengths in 1:52.2 in the slop. Dancing Lisa finished third.
Doug Snyder trains Sansovina Hanover, who pushed her career bankroll to $345,497, for Frank Poerio Jr.
Mike Wilder, who collected four wins on Monday's card, added three more Tuesday while trainer Dirk Simpson also enjoyed a triple on the 13-race card.
Live racing at The Meadows continues Wednesday when the 13-race program features a $79,836.62 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5 and a $973.80 carryover in the Pick 5 (race 8). First post is 12:45 PM.--By Evan Pattak/Meadows Standardbred Owners Association
