RED STAR HOTTIE WINS FIRST THIS YEAR IN MEADOWS $18K F&M PACE; WILDER PASSES $40M IN PURSES
WASHINGTON, PA, Feb. 4, 2013 - Blanked in her first three 2013 starts, Red Star Hottie ended her uncharacteristic dry spell when she shot the Lightning Lane to capture Monday's $18,000 Filly & Mare Not Listed Preferred/Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.
A career winner of $613,850, Red Star Hottie suffered several narrow losses this year before her Monday breakthrough for Dave Palone, who gave her a comfortable pocket trip behind Tremor Hanover. She blew by late to triumph in 1:53.4 over a snow-covered surface, a length better than the rallying Do Me Honor, who saw her three-race win streak snapped. Tremor Hanover saved show.
Ron Burke trains Red Star Hottie, an 8-year-old daughter of As Promised-Whitehorse Fever, for Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.
Palone drove four winners on the 15-race card - shortened by one due to the cancellation of the final event - and Mike Wilder three. With his victory in the second race behind Pounce K, Wilder surpassed $40 million in career purses.
