Rose Run Yanae jogs in Meadows feature

Washington, PA — Rose Run Yanae looked very much the part of a 1-9 favorite as she toyed with the field and jogged to victory in Wednesday’s (Dec. 20) feature at Hollywood Casino at The Meadows, a $12,500 conditioned trot.

In September, the 3-year-old Rose Run Yanae finished second in the Ohio Sires Stakes championship and won the Ohio Breeders Championship, and thus — on paper, at least — looked much the best in Wednesday’s overnight event. The daughter of Triumphant Caviar-Stonebridge Dancer lived up to expectations. After Aaron Merriman gave her a comfortable :59.1 opening half, she sprinted clear and scored in 1:56.3 over a “good” surface, three lengths better than the pocket-sitting Hit Like Crazy. Kenobi shot the Lightning Lane for show.

Bill Daugherty Jr. trains Rose Run Yanae, who now sports a lifetime bankroll of $413,213, for Susan Daugherty.

Dave Palone and Merriman each collected three wins on the 13-race card while “Downtown” Brady Brown teamed with his sister, trainer Ashley Brown, for a pair of victories.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Thursday (Dec. 21), when the 13-race program features a $1,281.90 carryover in the early pentafecta (race four). First post is 12:45 p.m.
