DO ME HONOR SURVIVES HOT QUARTER, WINS MEADOWS F&M PACE
WASHINGTON, PA, Feb. 11, 2013 - Despite contesting a hot 26.4 opening quarter, Do Me Honor had enough left late to capture Monday's $18,000 Filly & Mare Not Listed Preferred/Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows - her fourth victory in the last five starts.
Do Me Honor dueled with Tremor Hanover for the early lead, briefly yielding to the pocket before Aaron Merriman had her out and moving again at the quarter. The 5-year-old Cheyenne Rei-Do Me Right mare thwarted the first-over challenge of Red Star Hottie and survived the late rush of Ole Miss, who fell 1/2 length short in finishing second. Ideal Treasure was third in the 1:54.1 mile.
Bill Bercury trains and owns Do Me Honor, who now boasts $268,088 in career earnings. Dave Palone drove five winners and Eric Ledford three on the 16-race card.
