Sam Hill Prevails By A Nose

Published: May 13, 2015 06:58 pm EDT

Sam Hill stalked the leader, Dew N Doughnuts, from the pocket, then nailed him in the Lightning Lane to capture Wednesday’s $20,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

Greg Wright Jr. hustled Sam Hill to the pocket, where the nine-year-old Artsplace-Apple Of My Eye gelding was content to let Dew N Doughnuts do the heavy lifting. Sam Hill had just enough to get by the leader in deep stretch, downing him by a nose in 1:51.3. Im The Pied Piper finished third.

John Sullivan trains Sam Hill, who extended his lifetime bankroll to $342,332, for Don Tiger.

Tony Hall and Dave Palone each piloted four winners on the 13-race card. Palone, who notched career win 17,000 in the first race, ended the day with 17,003 career victories.
