The Adios eliminations card at The Meadows on Saturday (July 25) also featured a pair of stakes for three-year-old pacing fillies—a $188,682 Pennsylvania Sires Stake (PASS) and a $100,000 PA Stallion Series event. There was action aplenty, as a stake record was matched and a Dan Patch Award winner got off the 2020 schneid.

After suffering two tough beats to start the year, last year’s divisional champ Lyons Sentinel scored impressively in a career-best 1.49:2 in the opening division of PASS. Sitting behind swift fractions, she moved first up for Tim Tetrick and downed Alexiss Beach by two-and-a-quarter lengths with Rocknificent third.

“She could definitely have three wins already, but today she got the better trip,” Tetrick said. “She’s ready to go beat somebody for sure.”

Party Girl Hill did not race at two, but she has started her sophomore campaign with a flourish—four victories without a loss, including a 1:49.1 win in the other PASS split for Dexter Dunn. That equaled the mark Big McDeal established in 2012.

“She’s always had good speed, nice manners — an easy keeper. She always struck us as having class even before we raced her,” said Chris Ryder, who trains Tom Hill’s homebred daughter of Captaintreacherous-Look Cheap. “At two, she had a broken P-1, a bone between the ankle and the foot in the hind leg. It’s not unusual for horses, and they heal up, no problem.”

JK First Lady finished second, beaten one-and-a-half lengths, with Baby Your the Best third.

Going Gone Hanover earned stake honours with her 1:51.4 win while Dream Dancing provided the tote board pyrotechnics, upsetting at 49-1 for Chris Shaw and trainer Mitchell York, who owns the Rocknroll Dance-Clearly Foxy filly with David Brickell.

In her win, Going Gone Hanover retook the lead for Mike Wilder and was not threatened from there, defeating a rallying Anthem by three-and-a-half lengths. Wingding Hanover completed the ticket.

“I got to drive her last week and kind of got away in a bad spot with her,” Wilder said. “I either wanted to get a two-hole trip or try her on the lead today because she raced so good last week first over. Boy, did she ever show up.”

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Monday (July 27) when the 15-race card features an $18,729.84 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5 and a $5,000 total-pool guarantee for the Early Pick 4 (Race 3). First post is 12:45 p.m. (EDT).
