HANDY youngster Lovebeinglucky was driven patiently in the pocket before being angled into the ‘lightning lane’ to score in a stake-fastest in last night’s $100,000 Pennsylvania Stallion Series stake at The Meadows.
The event for filly trotters was contested over five divisions, with Seaside Breeze, Miss Da Line, Tequila Sunrise As and Decadence also taking $20,000 splits.
Trainer Jonas Czernyson enjoyed a stake double with Seaside Breeze and Decadence.
Lovebeinglucky stopped the clock in 1:58.2, which doubles as a personal best.
Lovebeinglucky has raced an unusual schedule that includes fair Stakes, PA Sires’ Stakes and an Arden Downs affair in addition to stallion series events. Her best shot for a Championship is in the PA Fairs, where she currently ranks eighth in points.
“You have to put them where you think they can do the best,” said trainer/driver Rick Beinhauer who, with Regina Beinhauer, owns and bred the daughter of Lucky Chucky-Tahiti Springs. “She’s a nice filly, not a great filly, but she likes the half-mile tracks. She’s set three track records at the fairs this year.”
In Monday’s stake, the two-year-old followed the front-ending All Set Lets Go before blowing by in the stretch and holding off the rallying Havanna Bar by a half length. All Set Lets Go battled on for third.
