Lady Newton Prevails In Meadows Feature

Lady Newton winning at The Meadows

Lady Newton needed two cracks at her, but she finally got by All Day Sunshine in deep stretch to capture Wednesday’s feature at Hollywood Casino at The Meadows, a $12,000 filly & mare conditioned pace.

With All Day Sunshine on the point, Lady Newton, the 2-5 favourite, pulled the pocket into the final turn but could not pass the stubborn leader. However, when Aaron Merriman pointed her to the Lightning Lane, Lady Newton found a new gear and downed All Day Sunshine by half a length in 1:52.4. Crisp Mane finished third.

Bill Bercury trains Lady Newton, a four-year-old daughter of Sweet Lou-Im Sassy who lifted her lifetime bankroll to $164,934, for Renee Bercury.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Thursday, with first post at 12:45 p.m.
