Washington, PA — Despite being parked every step of the mile, Something Reel nevertheless had enough gas and guts to hold off five late challengers and capture Tuesday’s (Oct. 12) feature at The Meadows, a $12,000 distaff conditioned pace.
Something Reel left from post eight, but couldn’t make the early lead or find a seat for Dave Palone. When she turned for home, it appeared as if the 5-year-old daughter of Westwardho Hanover and I’m A Realist would be engulfed. But she hung tough, edging Hillbilly Kisses by a head in 1:53.2, with All Day Sunshine third.
Brandon Presto trains Something Reel, who now boasts a career bankroll of $179,010, for Larry Parlin.
Ronnie Wrenn Jr. and trainer Ron Burke each collected four wins on the 13-race card, while Aaron Merriman and Palone each enjoyed a triple.
Live racing at The Meadows continues Wednesday (Oct. 13), when the 12-race program features a $30,120.35 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 12:45 p.m.
