Swan Legacy pulls off 43-1 shocker in Meadows feature

Washington, PA  — Dismissed at 43-1, Swan Legacy converted a pocket trip to victory and pulled off the shocker in Wednesday’s (Nov. 1) feature at Hollywood Casino at The Meadows, a $15,900 Conditioned Trot.

Big Boy Ernest fronted the mile and was strong enough to turn back the outside challengers. But as the field turned for home and the Lightning Lane beckoned, Swan Legacy used his pocket trip to perfection, kicking by Big Boy Ernest and defeating him by 1-3/4 lengths for Jack Killeen in 1:54.2 over a “good” surface. The first-over Parshall finished third.
