Tori Hanover Upsets With Late Charge In Freshman Filly Pace Elim
Scott Zeron was aboard Tori Hanover for the upset win in the second $20,000 Breeders Crown Two-Year-Old Filly Pace at The Meadowlands on Oct. 22.
The Tony Alagna Somebeachsomewhere filly didn’t get much mention until she began to close on the bulk of the field late, storming pass favorite Someomensomewhere to win in 1:54.4. Someomensomewhere was three wide to the first quarter in :28, with Blameitonthenight first over and Rockette at the rail. Someomensomewhere then cut the half in :57.2 and at three-quarters in 1:26.3 Tori Hanover was third over and poised to swing out and charge on the group.
Someomensomewhere held for second, while Blameitonthenight got third, Jaye’s A Lady paced well after saving ground to get fourth and Rockette got a berth in the final by finishing fifth. Jeffrey Snyder owns the winning filly.
After the race Zeron said, “She was the product of a great trip tonight.” Tori Hanover paid $24.20.
