WASHINGTON, PA, Sept. 18, 2013 — Overcoming a demanding first quarter, Trotslikethewind stayed strong on the front in capturing Wednesday’s $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
Trotslikethewind charged toward the point from post 8 but was stuck outside before she could wrest the lead from Chilitodayhotamale in a swift 27.4 panel. Chilitodayhotamale had every opportunity in the stretch, but the 8-year-old daughter of Pegasus Spur-Familiar Goal was resolute, scoring by 3/4 lengths in a sharp 1:54.4. Don’t Blink rallied for show.
Andy Rickert owns and trains Trotslikethewind, who now boasts $371,700 in career earnings. Dave Palone and Mike Wilder each drove three winners on the 15-race card.
