Fighting Evil endured a contested opening quarter and two late challenges to pull off the 8-1 upset in Wednesday’s feature at Hollywood Casino at The Meadows, a $15,900 Filly & Mare Conditioned Pace.

Heading to the front from post 8, Fighting Evil was parked in a lively 27 when Always Gonna B You would not release her. She made the point for Jeremy Indof but was confronted late by the first-over Be My Rose N and Kat in that one’s tow. The 6-year-old daughter of Sweet Lou-Evil Fight dug deep and triumphed in 1:51.3, 1/2 length better than Kat, with Be My Rose N third.

Jack Smith trains Fighting Evil, who now boasts a career bankroll of $284,523, for Shannon Depinto and Howard Taylor.

Ronnie Wrenn, Jr. piloted four winners on the 13-race card.
