Arthur Pendragon captured his second straight series win in Saturday’s second leg of the Atta Boy Dan Pace at The Meadows, scoring in a career-best 1:52.4.

Arthur Pendragon was away fourth before Mike Wilder sent him after the lead at the quarter. The homebred Dragon Again-Western Realist gelding jogged home from there, downing the first-over Trelane by 2-1/2 lengths. The pocket-sitting Stone Fire Hanover finished third. Dan Altmeyer trains Arthur Pendragon and owns with Richard Kelson.

More Dragon took the other $17,500 second-leg split in the event for three-year-old colts and geldings, prevailing in 1:52.1 for Dave Palone. The two will square off in the $32,500 (est) series championship next Saturday.

In the $20,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Pace, Unlocked rolled to a front-end victory in a swift 1:49.4 for Jim Pantaleano, trainer Norm Parker and owner Megan Rogers Racing Stables. Easy Again rode the pocket to a second-place finish, 1-3/4 lengths back, while Sam Hill was third.

With the win, the five-year-old son of Duneside Perch-Miss Major Power vaulted over $400,000 in career earnings.

Palone collected seven wins — four for trainer Ron Burke — while Wilder enjoyed a four-bagger on the 15-race card.
