It isn’t often that players get to reap double-digit rewards when Dave Palone drives for trainer Ron Burke, but it happened twice Monday at The Meadows when the duo teamed to sweep both $15,000 second-leg divisions of the Medusa Pace for three-year-old fillies with Sapphire Breeze (14-1) and Beach Club (12-1).

Sapphire Breeze atoned for her break in the series opener when she moved powerfully first over from fourth and had little trouble holding off Terrortina by 1-1/2 lengths in a career-best 1:54.1. Emily R Hanover finished third.

Beach Club, who hadn’t made the lead at any point in her last three starts, popped right to the front and defeated her stablemate, Make Mine Mocha by 1-1/2 lengths in 1:54.1, a life mark. When Flyme To The Moon finished third it gave Burke a 1-2-3 sweep of the split.

Overall, Palone and Burke teamed for five victories on the 13-race card.

Jim Pantaleano fashioned a three-bagger, including a win with Show Runner in the $18,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Pace.
