Waiting On A Woman teamed with driver Kevin Wallis to score a wire-to-wire win in 1:54.4 in Pompano Park’s $11,000 Open I trot on Wednesday night. The 5-year-old, gelded son of Northern Bailey rocketed out of the gate, carded an opening panel of :27.1 and proceeded to clock fractions of :56 and 1:25 before hitting the wire a winner by a diminishing one-half length over Blushing Hanover (Mickey McNichol) with She’s All In (Rick Plano) third. Prairie Big John was fourth and the lukewarm favorite, Andover America, making his pari-mutuel first start in five weeks, finished fifth. Waiting On A Woman is now three-for-three in 2013 and has continually moved up the ladder to now reign supreme in the division -- for now. Owned by New Jennaration of North Palm Beach, Fla. and trained by Travis Kolaczynski, the winner now sports a lifetime bankroll of $87,956 -- $12,750 of that in the first 16 days of the new year. Driver Kevin Wallis, in a post-race interview, said, “Travis (trainer Kolaczynski) said this horse likes to be in on the action early and he showed that tonight. His past couple of lines showed opening quarters of :28 and a piece so I was a bit concerned when he went :27.1 for that opening quarter. But he seemed to relax a bit and, though he might have been a bit weary near the wire, he was still trying.”
Shedding his cover before the three-quarters, Lonesome Attack powered through the lane to capture his second straight victory in Wednesday’s $22,500 winners-over $10,000 life/Preferred Handicap pace at The Meadows. Hammered down to 3-5 despite jumping two classes, Lonesome Attack was unhurried early before unleashing his potent late kick over a “good” surface for Brett Miller. The 5-year-old On The Attack--Lady Lonesome gelding scored in 1:53.2 over the rallying JJ Gladiator and Risk Management. Virgil Morgan, Jr. trains Lonesome Attack, who now boasts $246,884 in career earnings, for Gerrie Tucker, Ciro Gentile and Debbie Bird. Tony Hall drove three winners on the 13-race card, while Randy Bendis enjoyed a training triple.
