Last in the field of six at the three-quarters, Medusa unleashed a three-wide blitz that carried her to victory in Tuesday’s $18,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.
Medusa was following sluggish cover when Tony Hall decided to show her racetrack. The six-year-old daughter of Bettors Delight-Mythical quickly looped the field and engaged the leader, Show Runner, defeating her by half a length in 1:54.2 over a sloppy surface. Spreester shot the Lightning Lane for show.
Randy Bendis trains Medusa, who now boasts $416,352 in career earnings, and owns with Tom Pollack.
Mike Wilder collected four wins on the 13-race card while Dave Palone and Jim Pantaleano each enjoyed a triple.
