Monte Cristo Spur collected his third win in the last four starts — a 10-1 upset, no less — when he roared through the lane and captured Monday’s $18,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Trot at the harness racing meeting at The Meadows.
 
With Major Athens fronting the field through a swift 1:23.4 three quarters, trainer/driver Dick Stillings was content to keep Monte Cristo Spur in fourth along the pylons.

Stillings showed him racetrack around the final turn, and the 4-year-old son of Cantab Hall-Sweet Gabriella found another gear and rolled home in 1:53.4, a head better than the rallying Hot Type.

Tall Cotton earned show.

Richard Davis campaigns Monte Cristo Spur, who extended his career bankroll to $175,516.
 
Dave Palone piloted three winners on the 14-race card.
