Washington, PA — Bet On The Bay confidently pulled the pocket in the final turn and outdueled Lydeo, the 1-5 favorite, in the lane in Wednesday’s (April 20) Ruby Cook Memorial Pace at Hollywood Casino at The Meadows.

Party In Pink captured the other $12,500 second-leg division in the series for 3-year-old fillies. Dave Palone piloted the winners of both splits, among his five victories on the 11-race card. The $17,500-added series championship is set for Wednesday, April 27.

Once Lydeo enjoyed a leisurely :58.3 front half, it appeared that, even with the two-hole trip, Bet On The Bay would have trouble getting by. But once Palone unleashed her, the daughter of Betting-Line-Whos Up Whos Down showed her mettle, downing Lydeo by a neck in 1:54.2 and snapping her three-race winning streak. Somemiki Hanover finished third.
