Camera Lady pulls off 15-1 shocker in Meadows Filly and Mare feature

Washington, PA –  Dismissed at 15-1, Camera Lady blew by the 3-5 favorite, Touchamatic, down the backside and held on late to pull off the upset in Wednesday’s (June 26) $18,000 Filly & Mare Open Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

Camera Lady was fifth down the backside when Ronnie Wrenn, Jr. sent her after Touchamatic, who had won eight of her last nine starts. The 5-year-old daughter of Dragon Again-Ann Van Go had little trouble putting away the favorite but was all out to hold off her stablemate, Rosemary Rose, in deep stretch. Camera Lady prevailed by a head in 1:50.3, lowering her life mark by 1-2/5 seconds, while Touchamatic took show spot.
