WASHINGTON, PA, May 22, 2018 -- Graceful Vision was dismissed at 15-1, as was Rosemary Rose at 12-1, so few expected one of them to win Tuesday's $18,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows. Yet they both did, dead-heating for win with matching furious rallies.

Graceful Vision and Ronnie Wrenn, Jr. got the jump, moving behind the live cover of Medusa, while Rosemary Rose and Mike Wilder followed that pair third on the rim. The winners were a nose better than Lakeisha Hall, who was fashioning her own rally in the Lightning Lane, scoring in 1:51 on a "good" surface. The time is a career best for Rosemary Rose.

Doug Snyder trains Graceful Vision, a 5-year-old daughter of Yankee Cruiser-Vision Of Grace who was using Lasix for the first time, for Frank Poerio, Jr. She extended her lifetime bankroll to $245,580.

Ron Burke conditions Rosemary Rose, a 4-year-old daughter of Foreclosure N-Pantathlon, who now boasts $295,142 in career earnings for Burke Racing Stable, Jason Melillo and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.

Aaron Merriman collected three wins on the 13-race card.
