Stickler Hanover digs in late, wins Meadows feature

Washington, PA — Stickler Hanover led at every pole and thwarted the late challenge of Whiskey Blu to capture Thursday’s (July 28) feature at Hollywood Casino at The Meadows, a $12,800 conditioned trot.

Stickler Hanover faced no serious threats until mid-stretch, when Whiskey Blu loomed menacingly. The 5-year-old son of Explosive Matter-Secret Credit dug in for Brady Brown and held Whiskey Blu off by a half length in 1:54.1 over a good surface. Kommin On Strong completed the ticket.

Steve Schoeffel trains Stickler Hanover, who now has banked $238,047, for Virginia Schoeffel, Kathy Schoeffel, Dan Goehle and Mike Munn.

It was one of three wins for Brown on the 11-race card, including a pair for Schoeffel.

Friday’s (July 29) card at The Meadows features a pair of $40,000 Arden Downs Grand Circuit trots for 2-year-olds: one for fillies, the other for colts and geldings. On the wagering front, the 12-race program includes a $5,000 total pool guarantee on the Early Pick-4 (races 1-4), offered in association with the United States Trotting Association Strategic Wagering Initiative. Also featured are a $1,756.07 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5 and a $1,554.93 carryover in the Jackpot Pick-5 (races 4-8). First post is 5:10 p.m.
