Washington, PA – I Want Kandy vaulted to the lead from post three and never let a rival within striking distance, springing an 11-1 upset in Wednesday’s (Oct 23) feature at The Meadows, a $13,500 Conditioned Trot.
I Want Kandy foiled the uncovered bid of Perseverance and triumphed for Jim Pantaleano in 1:55. A length better than You’re Majestic in the Lightning Lane. Trixie Dust rallied for show. Scott Betts trains the 6-year-old daughter of Angus Hall-Celebrity Kandy, who extended her lifetime bankroll to $209,318, for Brookside Stables and Keith Gravis.
Pantaleano collected four wins on the 13-race card, including a pair for trainer J.L. Adams.
After a brief hiatus, live racing at The Meadows resumes Monday (Oct 28), when the program features a pair of rich wagering opportunities: a $5,000 total-pool guarantee for the Pick 4 (races 3-6) and a $9,292.79 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 1:05 PM.
