Trotting Filly Meepers is Two For Two in 2024 at Saratoga Casino Hotel

Trotting Filly Meepers (E L Titan) moved her record to two-for-two in 2024 when on Monday afternoon at Saratoga Casino Hotel, the sophomore high-stepper went coast-to-coast. Meepers raced just once as a freshman in ’23 and in that start, she finished second in a $35,200 New York Sire Stakes event at Buffalo Raceway.

Michelle Crawford trains Meepers for owner Michael Gilhooly of Delanson, NY and Brett Crawford drives the filly who cruised unopposed in the early going in her $7,500 Monday try for young trotters and never faced an anxious moment en route to repeating on the lead in 2:02 for team Crawford. The filly appears to be racing into form for an upcoming run at the NY Sire Stakes this spring and summer.

The Monday card was also highlighted by another impressive feat by leading driver Brett Beckwith. The 21 year old pilot drove five winners on both the Saturday and Sunday cards at the Spa leading up to a Monday program which saw him pile up another five victories. Beckwith has surged out to a commanding lead in the driver standings and continues to pad his lead daily aided by his three consecutive five-packs on Monday.

Live racing continues on Tuesday at Saratoga with a first post time set for noon.
