Wild Wild Western made the top with an uncovered move and found the line just in time in Friday’s (Jan. 8) $16,200 Open Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

Wild Wild Western was third when Tony Hall sent him after the leader, Macadoodledoo. The five-year-old son of Western Ideal and Caila Fra cleared handily, but was pressured late by Carolina Beach in the Lightning Lane. Wild Wild Western held that rival off by a neck in 1:51.3 while long shot The Wall rallied for show.

Norm Parker trains the winner, who lifted his lifetime bankroll to $269,229, for Jacobs Creek Racing, Andrew Altobelli and John Deters. It was one of four wins for Hall on the 13-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Wednesday (Jan. 13), when the program features a trio of rich carryovers: $4,254.49 in the Pick-5 (races 8-12), $3,068.87 in the final-race Super Hi-5, and $2,792.64 in the Early Pick-4 (races 4-7). First post is 12:45 p.m.
