WASHINGTON, PA, June 9, 2014 -- Undeterred by a demanding opening quarter, Foxy Lady rolled to a front-end victory in 1:50.4 -- matching the fastest this year by an older mare on a five-eighths-mile track -- in Monday's $24,800 Filly & Mare Not Listed Preferred/Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.
Foxy Lady worked hard to wrest the early lead from All Heart Gal in 28.4 but easily thwarted the first-over bid of the 7-10 favorite, Certified Ideal, and defeat her by 1-1/4 lengths. All Heart Gal was third. The time knocked a tick from Foxy Lady's lifetime mark.
