Wasaga Beach got her second straight win in the Donna Dunn Memorial Pace when she zipped to the front and scored handily in Monday's third leg at The Meadows. Candyapple Hanover and Rollatown also took $12,000 third-leg splits in the harness racing series for 3- and 4-year-old filly and mare pacers. Tony Hall enjoyed a series double behind Wasaga Beach and Rollatown.

Two scratches allowed Wasaga Beach to start from post 5 rather than the 7 hole, and the 3-year-old daughter of Somebeachsomewhere-Adela Hanover took full advantage by grabbing the early lead and powering home in a lifetime-best 1:54.4. The pocket-sitting Lucky Lucka was second, 1-1/2 lengths back, with Cedar Wapsi Road third. Randy Bendis conditions Wasaga Beach and owns with Reed Broadway, Tom Pollack and John Campbell.

In the $22,500 Filly & Mare Not Listed Preferred/Preferred Handicap Pace, Set Me Up dictated the fractions on top and cruised home in 1:51.2, 1/2 length better than the pocket-sitting Certified Ideal. Medusa lacked racing room and had to settle for show. Dave Palone drove the 7-year-old daughter of Shark Gesture-Moccasin Flight, who vaulted over $400,000 in career earnings, for trainer Ron Burke and owners Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.

Hall and Palone each piloted four winners on the 15-race card.
