Tamarind changed his tactics but the result was the same Tuesday at the harness racing meeting at The Meadows as he captured his third straight in the $18,000 Preferred Handicap Trot.

The 7-year-old son of Angus Hall-Spicegirl Kosmos prevailed by 1/2 length over Tall Cotton in 1:53.2, with Trustworthy Kid a close-up third.

On Tuesday, June 23, the live card at the harness racing meeting at The Meadows Racetrack & Casino will offer two total-pool guarantees -- a $10,000 guarantee for the Pick 5 and a $5,000 guarantee for the Pick 4.

Sam Hill stretched Atta Boy Dan to a demanding 26.3 first quarter.

Dave Palone and trainer Jimmy Takter teamed for a pair of stake victories with Lilu Hanover and Speak To Me. Co-owners Acadia Farms and trainer Marty Wollam consigned Manhattan Miss to the Delaware sale as a yearling but withdrew her when a nasty scar from a leg gash suffered as a weanling appeared to diminish her sale value. The daughter of Broadway Hall-Sneaky Speed raced for the partners at 2, showing talent but breaking problems. They soon discovered the cause of the breaks. Late in her sophomore campaign, her leg disgorged a sizable wood chip left over from the earlier injury. "It took that long for the wood to work itself out," Wollam said. "Since then, she's been good." On Friday, she quarter-poled to the lead for Mike Wilder and downed Alpha Alpha by 3-3/4 lengths, with Murderers Row third.

He was right. It worked out well." Lilu Hanover withstood a serious backside challenge from Big Barb and scored in 1:55.4, 1-1/2 lengths better than Global Ice. Big Barb saved show.

She should have a great season." Marvin Katz and Al Libfeld campaign the daughter of Andover Hall-Lady Luck Hanover, who pushed her career bankroll to $133,455. Shewontkissandtell produced the stake's tote board fireworks when, trailing by 4-1/2 lengths at the top of the stretch and seemingly blocked by a pair of horses, she poured through a gift opening in the Lightning Lane and prevailed in 1:59.2, at 14-1, for Brian Zendt. KB's Big Gainer was second, 2-1/2 lengths back, while Sand C-Four earned show. "Someone ran in the last turn, and I thought I would get some room," Zendt said. "Then two horses moved outside, and I thought I was better off just staying left. Man, I didn't have to worry about her having enough trot. A little luck helps." Lisa Dunn-Adams conditions the homebred daughter of Glidemaster-Caviar And Kisses for Dunn Stable. In the $22,500 Filly & Mare Not Listed Preferred/Preferred Handicap Pace, the always-tough Do Me Honor was at it again, coming first over to triumph for Aaron Merriman and owner/trainer Bill Bercury in 1:52.4.
