Kommin On Strong moved powerfully first-over and passed Whiskey Blu in the shadow of the wire to score in Thursday’s feature at Hollywood Casino at The Meadows, a $14,000 conditioned trot.
Kommin On Strong was third when Mike Wilder sent her after Whiskey Blu. It took every inch of the stretch, but the four-year-old daughter of Donato Hanover-Komma Ka Z downed Whiskey Blu by a head in 1:54.3. Killer Instinct rallied for show.
Dean Collins trains the winner, who lifted her lifetime earnings to $107,721, and owns with Arnold Witkin and Claude Gendreau Stable.
Jeremy Indof and Wilder each piloted three winners on the 11-race card.
Live racing at The Meadows continues Friday when the 11-race program features a $415,29 carryover in the Jackpot Pick 5 (Race 4). First post is 5:10 p.m.
