Heza Challenger asserted his current dominance of The Meadows’ elite trotters once again Wednesday when he cruised to victory — the fourth in his last five starts — in the $27,500 Preferred.

Brett Miller sent Heza Challenger to the front in a contested opening quarter of :27.4, but the five-year-old Chip Chip Hooray-Ten Queens gelding caught a :30.4 breather the second panel. From there, it was strictly no contest, as Heza Challenger poured it on to score in 1:54.4, 5-1/4 lengths better than Meadows newcomer Swan Image. Blowlowsanta was promoted to third with the disqualification of Master Begonia for a late break.

Bruce Riegle trains Heza Challenger, who triumphed for the 19th time in 43 career outings, for Robert Kauffman. It was one of three wins on the 14-race card for Miller.
