New Style, Same Result For Valley Of Sin

Abandoning his customary rallying style, Valley Of Sin zipped right to the front, thwarted his lone serious challenger and captured his third straight victory in Wednesday’s $18,000 Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.

In his most recent six starts, Valley Of Sun never held the lead until the final call. On Wednesday, however, trainer/driver Wilbur Yoder hustled him to the point and gave him a comfortable :59 opening half. That left the six-year-old Yankee Glide-Anklet Hanover ridgling with enough pop to turn back the first-over bid of Sixteen Mikes and triumph in 1:55.3. The pocket-sitting Classicality finished second, one and a half lengths back, while Sixteen Mikes was third.

John Ducharme campaigns Valley Of Sin, who now boasts $256,899 in career earnings.

Dan Rawlings collected three wins on the 12-race card.
