Dapper Dude stalked Mykindachip from the pocket, then blew by him in the lane to capture Monday’s $20,000 Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

Dapper Dude chased Mykindachip through a 1:23 three-quarters before Aaron Merriman vacated the pocket and asked the millionaire for pace. The eight-year-old son of The Panderosa-Dress To Suggest responded by wearing down Mykindachip and downing him by 1-1/4 lengths in 1:50.4. Heavenly Knox shot the Lightning Lane for show.

Bill Bercury trains Dapper Dude, who boosted his lifetime bankroll to $1,060,520, for Renee Bercury.

In Monday’s companion feature, the $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Pace, Rockin Rum Springa cut out a brutal :25.3 opening panel but had enough to hold on and triumph by a half-length margin in 1:52.1 for Eric Goodell, trainer Ron Burke and owners Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC. Dime A Dance and Southwind Roulette, a Doug Snyder-trained entry, finished second and third, respectively.

A four-year-old daughter of Rockin Image-Deferred Comp, Rockin Rum Springa now boasts $185,611 in career earnings.

Dave Palone piloted four winners on the 13-race card while Burke fashioned a triple.
