TWEET ME WINS SUNDAY 56G OPEN HANDICAP TROT


Leaving from the pole in a field of 10 going the mile-and-a-quarter, Tweet Me was pocketed to the quick start of Cash Me Out (Tyler Buter). That one led through early intervals of :28 and :57.1), with Lily's Swan Pond (Joe Bongiorno) managing to get parked out from post position No. 2.

Cash Me Out maintained the lead at the 1:26.3 three-quarters, with 'Lily' dropping anchor. Luminosity (George Brennan) went wide around that one, but couldn't sustain a bid.

After a snappy 1:55.2 mile, the leader was in trouble. Twee Me edged from the cones and went by, getting the jump on her main threats, stout closers by a ninth-early Wind of the North (Jason Bartlett) and a last-early Dot Dot Dot Dash (Steve Smith).

Tweet Me parlayed the route to win by a neck in 2:24.4...breaking (by a tick) her own track record for an aged mare at the 10-furlong distance.

Dot Dot Dot Dash snapped second over Wind of the North, with Luminosity and Springbank Sam N (Jordan Stratton) settling for the remainder.

For Tweet Me, a 5-year-old daughter of Andover Hall owned by Bridget McNeese and trained by Nicholas Devita, it was her fifth win in 21 seasonal starts. The exacta paid $157, with the triple returning $897.

This was the first of a half-dozen Sunday matinees leading to the end of the season. Post times for the remainder (next one is Nov. 11th) are TBA as of this writing.
