WASHINGTON, PA, Sept. 15, 2014 -- Converted claimer Your Beautiful moved powerfully first over and rolled to a narrow victory in Monday's $15,000 Filly & Mare Not Listed Preferred Pace at The Meadows. Your Beautiful won three straight in optional claimers before advancing to the Not Listed Preferred Pace last week. Although she finished third then, she was even stronger Monday for Mike Wilder when she kicked by the leader, Certified Ideal, and held off Rescue Team by a nose in 1:52. Metro Ville rallied for show. Mike Palone trains Your Beautiful, a 5-year-old daughter of Your Nemesis-Beautiful Girl who now has banked $292,678 in her career, for Tom Mucci. Dave Palone drove five winners and Mike Wilder three on the 15-race card. by Evan Pattak, for the Meadows
Campbellville resident Mike Saftic opened Monday's (August 13) Grassroots harness racing program at Mohawk Racetrack with a pair of victories aboard two talented freshman pacing colts.
Your Beautiful has led a dual existence this season, competing successfully in both the Grassroots and Gold Series harness racing programs, but Stephen Gillard says if the two-year-old pacing filly delivers a strong effort at Windsor Raceway on Sunday she will finish up the season among the province's best.
