This Upset Winner Is 'Forreal'

Jewels Forreal stalked her stablemate, McDazzle, from the pocket, then roared past in the Lightning Lane to spring an 8-1 upset in Tuesday’s $18,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

McDazzle, who was bidding to extend her winning streak to four, turned back a stern third-quarter challenge from Easy Three. But that effort may have weakened her, as the three-year-old Jewels Forreal had little trouble downing her four-year-old stablemate by a half-length for Mike Wilder in 1:54.2 over a “good” surface. Keystone Riptide completed the ticket.

Ron Burke trains Jewels Forreal, a daughter of So Surreal-Dandys Jewel who lifted her lifetime bankroll to $169,313, for Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.

Trainer Karen Fread enjoyed a triple on the 13-race card.
