Dynamite Diva controlled the field with a measured first half but had to dig in late to preserve her victory in the $25,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap trot Wednesday at The Meadows.

When Aaron Merriman sent Dynamite Diva through early fractions of 28.1 and 58, she had plenty left in the tank. She needed all of it to repel the first-over challenge of In Focus Hanover (Ed Hensley) and the late thrust of Whybabywhy (Dick Stillings). Dynamite Diva prevailed in 1:55.4, with Whybabywhy missing by a head. In Focus Hanover and Whotookwhat (Ray Paver) dead-heated for show.

Peter Wrenn trains Dynamite Diva, a six-year-old daughter of Davanti-Benns Limit, and owns with Eugene Oldford, Stephen Oldford and The Kales Company.

Dave Palone drove four winners on the 13-race card.
