Fifth by six lengths when he launched his relentless uncovered move, Dapper Dude nailed Lincolnjames in the shadow of the wire to capture Friday’s $18,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

Lincolnjames opened a two-length lead turning for home, but a :26.2 opening panel over a sloppy surface left him vulnerable to Dapper Dude’s pressure. The eight-year-old son of The Panderosa-Dress To Suggest edged Lincolnjames by half a length in 1:50.2 for Aaron Merriman, with the rallying Knocking Around third.

Dapper Dude a career winner of more than $1.1 million, is trained by Bill Bercury for owner Renee Bercury.

Dave Palone collected five wins, including a pair for trainer Ron Burke, on the 12-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Monday, first post 1:05 p.m.
