Summer Charm passed up an early seat, kept rolling to the point and captured her fourth straight victory — two last November, two this month — in Wednesday’s (July 15) feature at The Meadows, a $10,800 conditioned pace for fillies and mares.

Although Summer Charm had the opportunity to drop in third in a :26.4 opening panel, she and Jim Pantaleano thought better of it, wresting the lead from Amelias Courage A. The four-year-old daughter of Bettors Delight and Lover Of Art had little trouble from there, scoring in 1:52.1. Greenhilldebatable rallied from last for second, 1-1/4 lengths back, while Amelias Courage A saved third.

Scott Betts trains Summer Charm, who extended her career bankroll to $341,595, for Tim Betts, Nicholas Catalano, Keith Pippi and Brookside Stables.

Dave Palone piloted three winners on the 15-race card, giving him 13 this week, while Chris Shaw, Mike Wilder, trainer Ron Burke and Pantaleano also enjoyed three-baggers.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Saturday (July 18), when the program features a trio of stakes: a $193,156 Pennsylvania Sire Stakes and a $100,000 Stallion Series event, both for three-year-old pacing colts and geldings, and a $42,610 Arden Downs event for sophomore trotting colts and geldings. The 15-race card also features an $8,881.21 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5 and a $972.64 carryover in the Early Pick 5 (race 2). First post is 12:45 p.m.
