Dismissed at a juicy 33-1, Fancytucky followed live cover, then roared through the lane to pull off the shocker in Tuesday’s $22,000 Filly & Mare Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
Fancytucky was fifth down the backside when Dan Rawlings moved her off the cones to follow the first-over Goodtogo Hanover. The five-year-old daughter of Pinetucky-Beaucoup Amour nailed Goodtogo Hanover by a neck at the wire, prevailing in a career-best 1:54.4. Early leader Bags For All finished third. Troy McDougal trains Fancytucky and owns with James Steuernagel.
Elsewhere on the 14-race card, Muay Hanover scored in 1:56.2, fastest this year by a three-year-old colt trotter on a five-eighths-mile track. Mike Wilder drove for trainer Ron Burke and owners Burke Racing Stable, J&T Silva Stables and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.
Jim Pantaleano and trainer Christen Pantaleano teamed for a pair of victories, as did Brian Zendt and trainer Todd Rooney with the half-siblings Swell Chap and Casey T. Rawlings and Wilder each checked in with a double.
