Primo Spur, rebounding from two disappointing races, used a pocket trip and a late brush to capture the $25,000 Preferred Trot in a career best clocking of 1:54.2 Wednesday at The Meadows.

A beaten favourite two starts ago, Primo Spur suffered broken equipment in his most recent start, a mishap that cost him the lead. On Wednesday, trainer/driver Dick Stillings hustled him to the pocket, where he enjoyed escort service provided by the well-meant Prism K. Primo Spur charged in the lane to down that rival by a neck, with Oatmeister a closing third.

Roy Davis owns Primo Spur, a five-year-old gelded son of Pegasus Spur-T Tars Shadowmio who won for the 25th time in 70 lifetime outings.

In the $25,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot, Hidden Viggorish was parked for three-eighths of a mile before grabbing the lead but prevailed for Brian Zendt in 1:54.3, just two ticks off the track record for older mares she established last week. Toms OK Lady came from well back to be second and Go Get Blanche was third.

Bill Zendt trains Hidden Viggorish, a six-year-old daughter of SJs Caviar-Tia Maria who pushed her career bankroll to $385,879, for Harmony Spring Stable.
