Native Dream made up 2 lengths in the Lightning Lane to capture her second straight harness racing victory in Friday's second leg of the My Drag Queen Pace at The Meadows.

In the other $12,500 division of the series for 3-year-old fillies, R Marie Hanover overcame post 9 to notch her second consecutive series win.

Native Dream saved ground for most of the mile, but when Brett Miller turned her loose late, she easily overtook the leader, Mattwestern, and defeated her by 2 lengths on a "good" surface in 1:55.4. Dragon's Tale finished third. Jim Dailey trains the daughter of Allamerican Native-Eternal Optimism, who has won five of eight lifetime starts, for Pacey Mindlin and Kenneth Cohen.

R Marie Hanover vaulted to the lead for Greg Grismore before yielding to the pocket behind Save My Dragon. The daughter of Somebeachsomewhere-R Ellen Hanover was strongest in the stretch, downing the rallying Doubelieveinmagic by a head in 1:56.2. Save My Dragon saved show. Norm Parker trains R Marie Hanover for Megan Rogers.

Dave Palone drove three winners on the 12-race card.
