Dismissed at 11-1, Photo Fantasy worked out a comfortable pocket trip, then charged through the Lightning Lane to score the upset in Monday’s $22.500 Filly & Mare Preferred Trot at The Meadows.

Although competitive in The Meadows’ top distaff trot, Photo Fantasy had been earning cheques rather than wins and thus was lightly regarded. On Monday, however, she sat behind the hard-working Kandor Hanover and brushed late for Eric Ledford to triumph in a career-best 1:55.2. Nickie K rallied for second, while Kandor Hanover saved show.

John Melsheimer trains Photo Fantasy, a five-year-old daughter of Classic Photo-Tintern who now has banked $125,106, for Jim Winske and William Donovan.

Tony Hall drove four winners and Greg Grismore three on the 15-race card. In the ninth race, Grismore scored with Mr Cruise to give Marcus Marashian the 1,000th training victory of his career.
