Amelias Courage A waited patiently in the pocket while the leaders duelled, and then rolled by in the 'lightning lane' to capture Wednesday’s (July 1) $17,900 Fillies and Mares Open Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

Blue Ivy engaged the front-ending Lakeisha Hall down the backside, and finally edged past her at the top of the lane. But when Dan Rawlings pointed Amelias Courage A inside, she proved the freshest of the trio, beating Blue Ivy by a neck in 1:51.3 to match her career best. Lakeisha Hall saved show.

Richard Perfido trains Amelias Courage A, a six-year-old daughter of Courage Under Fire and American Dreamer who now boasts $153,565 in lifetime earnings, for Thomas Mattingly.

Dave Palone, Mike Wilder and trainer Ron Burke all fashioned grand slams on the 15-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Saturday July 4), when the program features the $102,245 Currier & Ives for three-year-old trotters as well as the $64,594 Currier & Ives filly division. The card also offers an $8,080.56 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 12:45 p.m.
