Trailing by 5-1/2 lengths at the three-quarters, Tonianne unleashed a powerful stretch kick that carried her to victory in Wednesday’s co-feature at Hollywood Casino at The Meadows, a $10,300 filly & mare conditioned pace.
Tonianne hadn’t raced since October 8 and appeared to be enjoying a conservative trip in her return. But when Hunter Myers asked her for pace, the four-year-old daughter of Somebeachsomewhere-Table Talk looped the field and triumphed in 1:53.3. Early leader Dream Dancing was second, three-quarters of a length back, with Bettor Lady third.

Myers completed a sweep of Wednesday’s co-features when he scored with Game Of Shadows, who scorched a $10,300 filly & mare conditioned pace in a front-end, career-fastest 1:51.4.
Paul Corey conditions the four-year-old daughter of Shadow Play-Cheyenne Ava, who notched her second straight win and lifted her lifetime bankroll to $177,514, for Kenneth Ashba.
Brady Brown joined Myers with a double on the 10-race card.
Live racing at The Meadows continues Thursday when the 10-race program features a $3,157.19 carryover in the Jackpot Pick 5 (race four). First post is 12:45 p.m.
