Mike Wilder piloted six winners Wednesday at The Meadows, including the feature — a $20,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Pace — with Seventh Secret.

Wilder collected two wins for trainer Tim Twaddle and one each for conditioners Dan Altmeyer, Rick Clapper, Lou Goans and Dane Snyder.

Seventh Secret was a newcomer to The Meadows’ top pace, but he didn’t let the veterans of the class bully him. He sped to the lead from Post 2 for Wilder and rolled home comfortably in 1:50.3. At Press Time rallied for second, while Easy Again shot the Lightning Lane for show.

Altmeyer trains Seventh Secret, a four-year-old son of Allamerican Native-Secret Song who extended his career bankroll to $218,134, for Ruth Altmeyer, Eric Hucthison and Heather Wilder.

Elsewhere on the program, Hillbilly Hanover notched a front-end victory in 1:49.4, first sub-1:50 mile this year at The Meadows. Aaron Merriman drove the six-year-old Dragon Again-Hattie gelding for owner/trainer Bill Bercury.
