Keep Watching zipped to the lead from post 5 and never had an anxious moment, rolling to victory in the first round of the Donna Dunn Memorial Pace on Wednesday (March 3) at The Meadows.

Keep Watching began her career with 27 straight losses, but now has won two straight for her new connections, trainer Kevin Johnson and owner Rockridge Racing. Once the four-year-old daughter of Hes Watching and Ravishnmasterpiece made the point for Dave Palone, she had little trouble holding off the mild challenge of the first-over Filly Speaks, defeating her by 2-1/2 lengths in a sharp 1:53.4. Lady Sophia earned show.

Best Derby Native captured the other $10,000 opening-leg division in the series for three- and four-year-old fillies and mares.

The event honours the memory of Donna Dunn, longtime Standardbred owner and wife of the late owner, breeder, trainer and driver Walter “Boots” Dunn.

Aaron Merriman and Palone each collected three wins on the 13-race card.

Live harness racing at The Meadows continues Thursday (March 4), when the 13-race program features the opening leg of two series: The Dale McConnell Memorial Trot and the Mary Wohlmuth Memorial Trot. On the wagering front, the card offers a pair of carryovers: $1,608.09 in the Pick-5 (race 8) and $1,249.57 in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 12:45 p.m.
