An ultra-game Sansovina Hanover endured a parked-out :26 opening quarter yet had enough to hold off all challengers in capturing the Tuesday (July 7) feature at The Meadows, a $10,800 Filly & Mare Conditioned Pace.

Sansovina Hanover had to deal first with the uncovered bid of Greenhill Hanover, who could not reach. Then, in deep stretch, the five-year-old daughter of Somebeachsomewhere-Shacked Up found just enough for Mike Wilder to prevail in 1:51.4. Vibrent Kelly was second, beaten a neck, with Ask Me Ifi Care third. Greenhill Hanover, who had won three straight since being imported from Great Britain by the Ron Burke stable, finished fourth and suffered her first domestic loss.

Doug Snyder trains the winner, who boosted her lifetime bankroll to $326,543, for Frank Poerio, Jr. It was one of five wins for Wilder on the 15-race card.

Elsewhere on Tuesday’s program, Just Wanna Feel, who scored on Nov. 7, 2018 and followed it up with 54 straight losses, snapped her futility streak when she won for trainer Bob Krenitsky, Jr. and owner Julie Krenitsky. Jeremy Indof kept the six-year-old mare near the lead, and she responded with a 1:56.1 mile, taking a $5,400 Conditioned Claiming Pace by one-and-a-quarter lengths.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Wednesday (July 8), first post 12:45 p.m. (EDT).
