ly impossible eight and a half-lengths behind at the three-quarters, Lloyds Lady launched a powerful move that carried her to an exciting victory in Monday’s Pennsylvania Stallions Series stake at the Meadows.

The $140,000 event for two-year-old filly pacers was contested over seven divisions, with Binding Desire, Want Answers, Iwannabejustlikeu, Real Mozartist, Spirit Of Desire and Glowing Fashion also taking $20,000 splits. Dave Palone enjoyed a stake triple (Binding Desire, Real Mozartist, Glowing Fashion) and finished the 16-race card with five wins.

Lloyds Lady and Skade both targeted the loose leader, Have More Wine, in the stretch, with Lloyds Lady a neck better at the wire in a career-best 1:54.2. Have More Wine saved show. Eric Ledford drove the daughter of Quik Pulse Mindale-Sanabelle Island , who won her second straight in the stallions series, for trainer George Teague, Jr. and owners George Teague Jr Inc and Katherine Bardis.

Binding Desire also captured her second consecutive stallions series split, retaking the lead at the quarter pole and scoring in 1:54.2 over Beautiful Artist. Lady Drama rallied for show. Bruce Riegle conditions the daughter of Real Desire-Open Book for Chuck Grubbs and Steve Carter.

Want Answers made the lead early from Post 7 for Aaron Merriman and produced a facile win by 3-1/4-lengths in 1:55.1 over Jesses Diamond, with Artprize third. Steve Elliott trains the daughter of Western Terror-Doctor Seth for Howard Taylor.

In the $22,500 Filly & Mare Not Listed Preferred/Preferred Pace, N Y Yankees sailed to the front but had to dig in late to hold off the charge of Tremor Hanover by a nose in 1:52.1. Didrickson completed the ticket. Palone piloted the daughter of The Panderosa-Pan Yankees for trainer Ron Burke and owners Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.
