Washington, PA — Mister Spot A threw down a final quarter of 27.2, a sizzling brush that carried him to victory — his second straight and fourth in his last five starts — in Friday’s (Feb. 14) feature at The Meadows, a $13,500 conditioned pace.
Mister Spot A was chasing the leader, Do Work Son, when he uncorked that quick panel for Tony Hall. The 6-year-old Village Jolt-Eerie Iris gelding defeated Do Work Son by 1-1/2 lengths in 1:53.2, with A Real Miracle third.
Scott Betts trains Mister Spot A, who lifted his lifetime bankroll to $121,012, for Tim Betts, Nicholas Catalano, Stephen Moss and Keith Pippi. It was one of three training victories for Betts on the 13-race card.
