Hung on the rim for more than one-half mile, Major Nemesis nevertheless put away the formidable Windsong Leo late to spring a 14-1 upset in Monday’s $17,900 Open Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

Major Nemesis was seventh when Aaron Merriman tipped him off the cones, perhaps looking for cover. When none emerged, the six-year-old Big Bad John-Nassau Loop gelding was forced to tackle the front-ending Windsong Leo without help. He advanced steadily, passed Windsong Leo near the wire and triumphed in 1:51.1. Dancin Dragon followed the cover of Major Nemesis for second, beaten a neck, while Windsong Leo saved show.

Bill Bercury trains Major Nemesis, who extended his career bankroll to $220,119, for Renee Bercury.

Dave Palone collected five wins on the 13-race card, including a pair for trainer Brian Brown.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Tuesday; first post 12:45 p.m.
