Rose Run Whitney earns narrow win in Meadows feature

Washington, PA — Rose Run Whitney enjoyed a :30.1 second-quarter breather — and needed every bit of it to eke out her second straight victory in Friday’s (May 20) feature at Hollywood Casino at The Meadows, a $12,500 conditioned trot.

Rose Run Whitney, the lone mare in the field, had to deal with a pair of challengers late: Stickler Hanover in the Lightning Lane and Donato Hanover on the outside. But Mike Wilder kept the 4-year-old daughter of Uncle Peter-Stonebridge Dancer to her task, and she held off Stickler Hanover by a head in 1:55, with Donato Hanover third.
