The Meadows: Fox Valley Charm Dominates Again In $20,000 F&M Pace

WASHINGTON, PA, May 8, 2018 — Parked with cover most of the mile, Fox Valley Charm turned in her third straight dominating performance in Tuesday's $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows, exploding late to destroy the field by 6-1/4 lengths. During her three-race streak, Fox Valley Charm has crushed the track's best distaff pacers by a combined victory margin of 15-1/2 lengths.

Aaron Merriman sent Fox Valley Charm toward the front from post 8, but when the duo couldn't reach the lead or find a seat, they paced three deep on the rim behind the cover of Shesasmokinlady and Camera Lady. When Merriman finally turned her loose, the 6-year-old daughter of Yankee Skyscaper-Fox Valley Cherub roared through the lane and scored in a career-best 1:50.4. Graceful Vision rallied wide for second while Show Runner found late racing room for third.

Dirk Simpson trains Fox Valley Charm, who boosted her career bankroll to $276,750, for Peter Karras.

Mike Wilder collected three wins on the 13-race card.
