Seven Straight For Dream Out Loud N

On Friday (Dec. 10) at The Meadows, Dream Out Loud N won his seventh straight race and 18th this year, moving him into a tie for the winningest horse this year in North America.

A 14-year-old Bettors Delight-Nothin Butadreamer gelding who faces mandatory retirement at the end of this month, Dream Out Loud N shares the top spot with Winning Shadow and Swan Fine Lady. Dave Palone drove for trainer Marcus Marashian, who owns with Tina Porfilio.

Carolina Beach shot the Lightning Lane for Aaron Merriman to capture Friday’s feature, a $12,100 conditioned pace.

Carolina Beach seized the early lead from Post 3 but yielded at the quarter to Done Well. In the stretch, a refreshed Carolina Beach was the stronger horse, scoring in 1:51.2. SB Bodacious found a late seam for second, three parts of a length back, while Done Well saved show.

Bill Bercury trains Carolina Beach, a seven-year-old Somebeachsomewhere-Laughandbehappy gelding who notched career win 42 and extended his lifetime bankroll to $498,832, for Renee Bercury.

Hunter Myers and Merriman each piloted three winners on the 12-race card.
