Bessie stalked Goodtogo Hanover from the pocket, then blew by her in the Lightning Lane to capture Tuesday’s $20,000 Filly & Mare Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.

Bessie left alertly from post 7 for Tony Hall and was able to secure the pocket behind Goodtogo Hanover, who had to deal with the menacing first-over move of Dirty Secret. That challenger eventually broke stride, but Goodtogo Hanover was left vulnerable to the inside charge of Bessie, who downed her by half a length in 1:54.2. Princess Pablano rallied for show.

Rick Clapper trains Bessie, a six-year-old daughter of Equinox Bi-Cantabs Chorine who now boasts $316,760 in career earnings, for Paula Clapper, Umholtz Racing Stable and Kennedy Sports Corp.

Mike Wilder collected four wins and Hall three on the 13-race card.
