Off more than six months since wrapping up her freshman season, Seashell Hanover blitzed the field with a powerful first-over move and scored easily in Friday’s Do Me Honor Pace at The Meadows.

Mamas Fallen Angel and Bet On Me Hanover also took $17,500 opening leg divisions in the series for three-year-old pacing fillies named for Do Me Honor, a fast-class mare currently competing at The Meadows for Bill Bercury. Dave Palone and Ron Burke, who teamed for four winners on the day, enjoyed a series double with Seashell Hanover and Bet On Me Hanover.

Making her first start in the Burke stable, Seashell Hanover sat fourth before launching her decisive backside move. The daughter of Somebeachsomewhere–Stolly Up Bluechip scored in 1:55.3 on a sloppy surface over Marissa. Early leader Bellas Quik finished third.

William Switala, James Martin and Joseph Critelli own Seashell Hanover.

In the $20,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Pace, Dedis Dragon retook the lead from Sam Hill at the quarter pole, then held on for Palone and Burke to defeat Sam Hill by half a length in 1:53.1, with Top Of The Mark third.

Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC, Phillip Collura and Tracy Hendler own Dedis Dragon, a four-year-old son of Dragon Again-Dedis Dream who now boasts $614,459 in career earnings.

Tony Hall drove five winners on the 15-race card while Eric Ledford fashioned a triple.
