Love U Overandover unleashed a wicked first-over move which carried her to victory in 1:56 in the $25,400 final of the Toms OK Lady Trot for three-year-old fillies Wednesday, April 27 at the Meadows. The win gave Love U Overandover a sweep of the series.

Love U Overandover was sitting fourth down the backside when Dave Palone moved her off the pylons and asked her for trot. She erased a four and a half-length deficit in a heartbeat and went on to defeat A Fair Chance by one and a quarter lengths. Early leader Filly Bay saved show.

“She’s just such a sweetheart to drive I didn’t care which way she did it,” Palone said. “When two or three of them left, I thought I would keep her out of trouble and let her trot along until I had to move her. I like the way she just loves to pass horses. She’s quick and willing — she has all the assets.”

John Duer, who trains the homebred daughter of Andover Hall--Love You Most for Peninsula Farm, said he allowed her to mature at two rather than race. That decision paid off, as she has developed into a versatile performer poised for upcoming Pennsylvania Sires Stakes.

“She’s green, and she’s actually better following horses. She just ended up on the front the last few times,” Duer said. “She’s carrying the load for the stable now because the rest of my horses aren’t racing yet. We’ll give her a little time off before the sires stakes.”

In the $22,500 Preferred Trot, Sir Caviar made an impressive return to the racing wars off a layoff of nearly five months, as he registered an easy front-end victory for Brian Zendt in 1:54.4 with a sharp :27.4 final panel. Neptune T was second and TW Little Kosmo third.

The five-year-old SJs Caviar--Sierra Flower K gelding, who was let go at a juicy 13-1, has won 13 of his last 21 starts for trainer Leslie Zendt, who co-owns with Bill Zendt.
