Macadoodledoo threw down a sizzling :54.3 back half, but still was all-out late to secure his victory in Friday’s (Dec. 11) $17,900 Open Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

Macadoodledoo zipped to the front from post four for Ronnie Wrenn Jr., but couldn’t draw away from Carolina Beach and Rock Candy, stalking from second and third, respectively. But Rock Candy’s Lightning Lane charge fell a head short, and Macadoodledoo prevailed in 1:50.4. Carolina Beach finished third.

Ron Burke trains the winner, a five-year-old Somebeachsomewhere-Pirouette Hanover gelding who vaulted over $200,000 in career earnings, for Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.

Elsewhere on Friday’s card, Dapper Dude, the personable, popular, strong-willed millionaire, faced the starter for the final time in his illustrious career. The 11-year-old chestnut son of The Panderosa and Dress To Suggest tried to go out a winner, quarter-poling to the point, but he tired and finished sixth.

Dapper Dude ends his racing career with 241 starts, 57 victories, a mark of 1:49 and just less than $1.4 million in earnings. He’ll enter stud at Harris Paint Horses & Stallion Station in Maryland. Trainer Tim Twaddle and other admirers presented the gallant gent with a retirement blanket.

Burke fashioned a five-bagger on the 13-race card while Wrenn and Aaron Merriman collected four wins and three wins, respectively.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Monday (Dec. 14), when the 13-race program features a pair of carryovers: $12,136.41 in the final-race Super Hi-5 and $1,903.14 in the Pick-4 (races four through seven). First post is 12:45 p.m.
