Fresh off her sweep in one series, Winning It began her assault on another Friday at The Meadows with an effortless victory in the opening leg of the Tremor Hanover Pace.

Tykesa Moon and Sharkist Breeze also took $15,000 divisions of the event for three-year-old fillies. Dave Palone and trainer Ron Burke teamed for a Tremor Hanover double with Winning It and Tykesa Moon.

Winning It marched through the Donna Dunn Pace for three- and four-year-old fillies and mares and, following a week off, was loaded for bear again. She allowed the field to settle, powered to the lead before the quarter and jogged home in 1:53.1. Belluga Babe was second, with American Grace a distant third.

Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Panhellenic Stable own the daughter of Dragon Again-Day After Day.

The card also featured a pair of $22,500 events — the Preferred Trot and the Filly & Mare Not Listed Preferred/Preferred Pace.

In the trot, Sir Caviar, the 2011 Horse of the Year at The Meadows, showed no ill effects from a four-month layoff, cruising to a facile front-end victory in 1:54 for Brian Zendt. Rembrandt Spur finished second, three-quarters of a length back, while SJs Super Star rallied for show. Leslie Zendt trains Sir Caviar, a six-year-old SJs Caviar-Sierra Flower K gelding, who now boasts $375,694 in career earnings, and owns with Bill Zendt.

The distaff contest was much more competitive as Cams Van Go, who got every call, held off the late brush of Spring Break to score by a head in 1:52.1 for Greg Grismore. In a rarity — a horse performing on the same card as a series named for her — Tremor Hanover was third.

Kent Sherman trains the six-year-old daughter of Real Artist-Cams Valentine, who notched her fifth victory in the last six starts, for Chris Arold, Kenneth Kohut and Michael Drury.
