Let go at a juicy 25-1, Stirling Euphoria moved powerfully first over to score the upset in Monday's opening leg of the Do Me Honor Pace at The Meadows. Lenore Karidian took the other $17,500 opening-leg division in the event for harness racing 3-year-old fillies. The series is named for Do Me Honor, a fast-class pacer who has banked more than $682,000 and is currently racing for owner/trainer Bill Bercury. A lightly raced filly making only her fifth career start, Stirling Euphoria responded like a seasoned veteran when Dave Palone sent her first over -- in the slop -- after the leader, Wasaga Beach. She spurted clear and scored in a career-best 1:56, surviving an inquiry for a possible pylon violation. Terror Grin rallied for second, 1-1/4 lengths back, with Hooves On First third. Ben Davis trains the daughter of Western Ideal-Chattanooga for Brent Hopper, S&S Racing Stable and Kenneth York.

Jim Pantaleano collected five wins -- including three for trainer Norm Parker -- on Monday's 15-race harness racing program at The Meadows, perhaps not big news because those guys roll up impressive statistics regularly. Steve Walters won race 11 with Night Music on the Monday card, and that is big news because Walters was making only his fourth start in a purse race since 2008. His last win came in 2007 at The Meadows. Ironically, Walters wasn't originally named on Night Music. But when Tony Hall had to call off his assignments, trainer Jim Rothfuss tabbed Walters to replace him on the 3-year-old daughter of Somebeachsomewhere-Michelle My Gal, a four-race maiden. The public wasn't deterred by Walters' long absence from the sulky, making Night Music the third choice at 7-2 in the $8,200 Non-Winners of 1 event for fillies and mares. Walters handled her capably and confidently, reaching the lead with a quarter-pole move and rationing her speed. She scored in 1:56.3, a neck ahead of Bettor Than Silk, with Cedar Wapsi Road third.
