Santa Fe Beachboy quarter-poled to the lead and held off the determined bid of Visible Gold to capture Friday’s $18,000 Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

In his last outing, Santa Fe Beachboy took on some of the sport’s best in the $150,000 Dayton Derby and was no match for the likes of Clear Vision and Foiled Again. But he was plenty tough Friday, snapping Visible Gold’s four-race winning streak by downing him by half a length in 1:51. Brooklyn Flight shot the Lightning Lane show.

Jim Pantaleano drove the four-year-old son of Somebeachsomewhere-Santa Fe Yankee, who extended his career bankroll to $122,093, for trainer Brian Brown and owner Santa Fe Stable.

In Friday’s companion feature, the $18,000 Filly & Mare Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Trot, Kandian Klub moved powerfully first over for Dave Palone to score in 1:55, one and three-quarter lengths better than Mistress Valentine. Victory Is Coming earned show.

Ron Burke conditions Kandian Klub, a five-year-old daughter of Pegasus Spur-KT Dee Dee who now boasts lifetime earnings of $172,851, for Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.

Palone drove five winners — four for Burke — on the 15-race card while Tony Hall enjoyed a four-bagger. Pantaleano and trainer Mike Palone each fashioned a triple.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Saturday with a special card that features the championships of four late-closing series. First post is 6:55 p.m.
