WASHINGTON, PA, April 2, 2014 -- Magic Wheel sat comfortably behind 3-5 favorite Unefoisdansmavie, then blew by her in the Lightning Lane to capture Wednesday's $18,000 Filly & Mare Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.

Unefoisdansmavie cut out a leisurely 59 first half and appeared poised for an easy victory. But when Dan Charlino guided Magic Wheel to the Lightning Lane, the 6-year-old Kadabra-Ws Balanced Wheel mare had little trouble putting away Unefoisdansmavie, downing her by 1-1/4 lengths in 1:56.2. Mistress Valentine also shot the Lightning Lane for show. Kris Hite trains Magic Wheel, who now boasts $528,220 in career earnings, for Tom Svrcek.

Aaron Merriman drove six winners on the 15-race card, capping his spectacular day by urging Delightful One home at 18-1.
