RACHEL KANEOKA WINS MEADOWS 'PINK OUT' TROT
WASHINGTON, PA, Oct. 31, 2012 - Rachel Kaneoka and Karat Winner roared through the stretch Wednesday to capture a special "Pink Out" trot featuring all female drivers that helped The Meadows and The Meadows Standardbred Owners Association (MSOA) raise money for breast cancer awareness.
In a companion trot featuring all male drivers, Tony Hall and Sand Piper scored with a sustained first-over move.
The Meadows and the MSOA donated their pari-mutuel commissions from the special races to the Magee Women's Hospital Breast Cancer Research Foundation in Pittsburgh, a partnership the organizations have nurtured for a number of years. Participating drivers also greeted fans before the card.
Kaneoka and Karat Winner followed the first-over cover of Cherie Keith (Panz Ferdinand) before peeling off in the lane to triumph in 2:01.1 over a sloppy surface. Naquel Harvey (AJ Niko D'oro) rallied for place, 3/4 lengths back, while Danita Harvey (Mr Cruise) saved show. Scott U'ren trains the winner, a 6-year-old daughter of American Winner-Cherry Tree Ruby, for Debbie U'ren.
The 1-2 favorite, Sand Piper notched his third straight victory by wearing down Mike Wilder (Win You Over) and prevailing by 4-3/4 lengths in 1:59.3. Brian Zendt (Desired Outcome) was third. Bruce Riegle conditions the 3-year-old daughter of American Winner-Elite Hanover for lessee Bob Key.
