Dapper Dude zipped to the lead, thwarted the challenge of the hard-used Stride Of Pride and captured Saturday’s $20,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

Dapper Dude was on an uncontested lead down the backside for Aaron Merriman when the three-wide Stride Of Pride drew even. But Stride Of Pride, parked every step, retreated in the lane, and Dapper Dude scored in 1:51.1. Sam Hill rallied for second, 1-1/4 lengths back, while Hawks Red Chief shot the Lightning Lane for show.

Bill Bercury trains Dapper Dude, an eight-year-old son of The Panderosa-Dress To Suggest who now boasts more than $1.16 million in career earnings, for Renee Bercury.

Trainer Ron Burke fashioned a five-bagger -- including four victories with Dave Palone at the helm -- on the 12-race card.
