Washington, PA — Southwind Aussie stretched out Somemiki Hanover to the quarter, then blew by her in the lane to pull off a 27-1 shocker in Thursday’s (May 12) feature at Hollywood Casino at The Meadows, a $10,300 conditioned pace for fillies and mares.

The strategy of Southwind Aussie and Jeremy Indof forced Somemiki Hanover to a swift :55.4 half that made her vulnerable to the late charge of Southwind Aussie, who scored in a career best 1:53. Somemiki Hanover saved second, two lengths back, while Bittrsweetsymphony finished third.

Alan Davadik trains the winner, a 4-year-old daughter of Betting Line-A And Gs Princess, for Mike Callipare, Lori Callipare, Mark Sosovicka and David Sosovicka.

Dan Charlino, Aaron Merriman, Mike Wilder, trainer Scott Betts and Indof each enjoyed a double on the 11-race card.
