World Champion Hidden Viggorish showed once again Thursday that she’s the queen of trotters at The Meadows, lowering her own track record for the second consecutive week in capturing the $27,500 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap.

She scored in 1:53.2, eclipsing her previous track record of 1:54 and the fastest ever for an older trotting mare at The Meadows. The time was just a tick off the all-age, all-gender track record that Hidden Viggorish established in 2006 at three. That mark still stands as the fastest every by a sophomore trotting filly on a 5/8-mile track.

Hidden Viggorish had to work for the lead from post position nine, but once Brian Zendt got her there, she clicked off quarters in :27.2, :29.4, :28.1 and :28 to prevail by 1-1/2 lengths over the pocket-sitting Toms OK Lady. BV’s Sister was a distant third.

Bill Zendt trains the daughter of SJs Caviar-Tia Maria for Harmony Spring Sable. Hidden Viggorish won for the 24th time in 63 lifetime starts, pushing her career bankroll to $447,129.

Dick Stillings, Mike Wilder and Brett Miller enjoyed driving triples on the 16-race card.
