Icanflylikeanangel set sail after the leader Perlucky at the three-quarters, collared him in mid-stretch and went on to capture the $18,000 Open Handicap Trot at The Meadows on Tuesday (Jan. 21).

Icanflylikeanangel was third when driver Mike Wilder tipped him off the cones. The six-year-old Archangel-Fox Valley London gelding advanced determinedly on Perlucky, downing him by a half length in 1:53.3. Final Breath earned show.

Randy Bendis trains the winner, who lifted his lifetime bankroll to $318,176, and owns with Pollack Racing LLC.

In Tuesday’s co-feature, the $20,000 Filly & Mare Open Handicap Pace, 10-1 outsider Dark Force followed the live cover of Mcdazzle and edged her at the wire to pull off the upset for Tony Hall. The five-year-old daughter of Bettors Delight-Skinny Dip scored in 1:52.2, extending her career earnings to $194,638 — and giving Bendis and Pollack a sweep of the day’s co-features. It was one of three wins for Hall on the 13-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Wednesday when the program features a trio of rich wagering opportunities: a $7,102.98 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5; a $5,931.69 carryover in the Pick 5 (Races 2-6); a $1,677.48 carryover in the Pick 4 (Races 3-6). First post is 1:05 p.m.
