Marloe Hanover wins Meadows distaff pace

Washington, PA — Millionaire Marloe Hanover bore out in mid-stretch but had a lead sufficient to withstand her circuitous journey home as she captured Wednesday’s (May 8) $19,200 Fillies and Mares Open Handicap Pace at Hollywood Casino at The Meadows.

Marloe Hanover led at every call turning for home, but as she drifted out, it took a course correction by Dave Palone to preserve her lead. The 7-year-old daughter of Captaintreacherous-Mesmerize Bluechip prevailed in 1:52.1, 1-1/4 lengths better than the pocket-sitting Lydeo, with the first-over Racin Hungry a good third.

Virgil Morgan Jr. trains Marloe Hanover, who now boasts 42 lifetime victories and earnings of $1,138,668, for Let It Ride Stables Inc. and Odds On Racing.

Trainer Jesse Barnard notched his first career victory with Dig Deep in race 12. Hunter Myers, Ridge Warren and Palone each fashioned a double while 13 different trainers enjoyed one victory apiece on the 13-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Thursday (May 9); first post is 12:45 p.m.
