Bettor Than Spring fended off multiple challenges to capture Friday’s feature at The Meadows, a $15,000 Conditioned Pace, and help his driver, Mike Wilder, to a five-bagger. Tony Hall also enjoyed a stellar afternoon, with four wins on the 13-race card.

Once Bettor Than Spring was forced to a :26.2 opening panel on a ‘good’ surface, he faced multiple threats, including a Lightning Lane brush from the pocket-sitting Do Work Son. But the five-year-old Bettors Delight-Spring Break gelding toughed it out and downed Do Work Son by a half-length margin in 1:53, with Mister Spot A third.

Randy Bendis trains Bettor Than Spring, who lifted his lifetime bankroll to $185,746, and owns with Jack Piatt II and R. Lewis Hauber.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Monday, when the program features a $5,000 total-pool guarantee in the Pick 4 (races 3-6) and a $3,552.82 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 1:05 p.m.
