Medusa became harness racing’s newest millionaire when she finished second in the $20,000 Filly & Mare Open Handicap Pace at the Meadows on Tuesday (Nov. 5).

Her cheque lifted her career bankroll to $1,004,178.

Tony Hall was aboard for the milestone trip for trainer Randy Bendis, who owns the eight-year-old daughter of Bettors Delight-Mythical with Pollack Racing LLC.

Fast, rugged and durable, Medusa was unraced at two and three, but made up for lost time in her initial — and best — campaign, when she banked $246,691.

Medusa will be selling at the Harrisburg Mixed Sale on Friday (Nov. 8) as Hip 1432. For more information, click here.

Medusa and her connections after she eclipsed $1 million in career earnings Tuesday at The Meadows.

Medusa led until deep stretch in Tuesday’s feature, but was outkicked in the ‘lightning lane’ by the pocket-sitting Amelias Courage A, who knifed through the slop to down Medusa by three quarter of a length in 1:53 for Dan Rawlings. The victory was the first win in three domestic starts since trainer Richard Perfido imported the five-year-old daughter of Courage Under Fire-American Dream for Thomas Mattingly. Camera Lady completed the ticket.

Rawlings fashioned a triple on the 13-race card.

Live racing at the Meadows will continue on Wednesday when the program features a $22,748.49 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post for the 13-race card is at 1:05 p.m.
