The Meadows: Cracklin Rosie Rallies From Worst To First In $20K F&M Pace
#1
CRACKLIN ROSIE RALLIES FROM WORST TO FIRST IN MEADOWS $20K F&M PACE


WASHINGTON, PA, Nov. 20, 2018 — Last by 8 lengths at the half, Cracklin Rosie followed a line of cover to the final turn, then roared wide through the lane to capture Tuesday's $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

Cracklin Rosie was third in a cover flow that seemed excessive. But when Jim Pantaleano tipped her wide for the drive, she showed she's no "store-bought woman" — as Neil Diamond's 1970 chart-topper Cracklin Rosie had it — and erased the last 3-1/2 lengths of her deficit, scoring in 1:55.4 over a sloppy surface. Jewels Forreal shot the Lightning Lane for second, 1-1/2 lengths back, while the first-over McDazzle finished third.

Scott Betts trains the 5-year-old daughter of Badlands Hanover-Honey's Bud Lite, who extended her career bankroll to $225,846, for Tim Betts, Stephen Moss, Nicholas Catalano and Pedro Baez III. It was one of three wins on the 13-race card for Pantaleano.
