Macharoundtheclock zipped to the lead from Post 4 and never faced a serious challenge as she captured Monday’s $18,000 Filly & Mare Not Listed Preferred/Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.
Primarily a closer until this year, Macharoundtheclock has shown more versatility of late. That served her well Monday when she flashed early speed for Mike Wilder and still had plenty in the tank. Eiffel Tower shot the Lightning Lane for second, 2-1/4 lengths back, with the pocket-sitting Mamas Fallen Angel third.
Tim Twaddle trains Macharoundtheclock, a five-year-old homebred daughter of Mach Three-Summers Soul who now boasts $479,133 in career earnings, for Birnam Wood Farms.
Jim Pantaleano collected three wins on the 15-race card.
On Tuesday, Nov. 10, the live card at The Meadows will offer two $10,000 total-pool guarantees — one for the Pick 4, the other for the Pick 5. Both are offered as part of the United States Trotting Association’s Strategic Wagering Initiative.
While a $5,000 Pick 4 guarantee is a regular feature each Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, The Meadows doubled the guarantee when Monday’s Pick 4 was uncovered, resulting in a carryover of $2,929.14. The track added the “instant” Pick 5 guarantee after no one hit Monday’s Pick 5. That produced a two-day carryover of $2,943.83.
Minimum wager for the Pick 4 (races 4-7) and Pick 5 (races 11-15) is 50 cents. Since Pennsylvania law requires a minimum per-race wager of $2, a player wagering at the 50-cent level must bet at least four tickets.
First post for Tuesday’s program is 12:55 p.m.
