PHOENIX WARRIOR N WORST TO FIRST IN MEADOWS $18K PACE; PANTALEANO WINS 4


WASHINGTON, PA, May 7, 2018 — Phoenix Warrior N went from worst to first in the final quarter to capture Monday's $18,000 Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

Looking sharp after his third-place finish in the Whata Baron Series championship at The Meadowlands, Phoenix Warrior N followed the live, three-wide cover of Arthur Pendragon into the final turn and outkicked him for Jim Pantaleano by 2-1/2 lengths in 1:50.4, a tick off his life mark. Early leader Dapper Dude saved show.

Scott Betts trains the 8-year-old Jereme's Jet-Never Walk Alone gelding, who boosted his career bankroll to $262,413, for Timothy Betts, Nicholas Catalano and Stephen Moss.

Pantaleano piloted four winners on the 13-race card while Brad Provost notched a pair of victories at eye-popping odds — 60-1 with Battle Cruiser, 42-1 with Grand Priority.
