Hidden Land shed cover around the final turn and nailed the game leader, Set Me Up, at the wire to capture Tuesday’s $24,800 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

Away fifth for Eric Goodell, Hidden Land followed the live cover of Spreester before taking aim at Set Me Up, who had been stung by a :26.2 opening quarter on a ‘good’ surface. Hidden Land got her nose past Set Me Up to score in 1:52.2 The pocket-sitting Coffee Addict finished third.

Brad Irvine trains Hidden Land, a four-year-old daughter of Badlands Hanover-Armbro Ocasey who now boasts $147,257 in career earnings, for William Sartin and Mark Salerno.

Tony Hall piloted five winners, Goodell four and Jim Pantaleano three on the 16-race card.

On Wednesday, Dec. 23, the final program of its 2016 live season, The Meadows Racetrack & Casino will offer a $20,000 total-pool guarantee for its Pick 4 wager as part of the United States Trotting Association's Strategic Wagering Initiative.

While $5,000 Pick 4 guarantees are regular features each Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, The Meadows sweetened the pot after Tuesday’s Pick 4 was uncovered, resulting in a carryover of $5,236.20.

Adding to the intrigue: Because carryovers between meetings are not permitted, the entire Pick 4 pool — as well as those for the Pick 5 and the final superfecta on the card — must be paid out. Should no bettor pick all four winners in the Pick 4, the pool will be shared by players who pick the most winners.

Minimum wager for the Pick 4 (Races 4-7) is 50 cents. Since Pennsylvania law requires a minimum per-race wager of $2, a player wagering at the 50-cent level must bet at least four tickets.

First post Wednesday is 12:55 p.m.
