Washington, PA — Glidinthruparadise followed the live cover of Expose Yourself, then outkicked her in the lane to capture Wednesday’s (Oct. 17) $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
Ohio invader Rose Run Sydney kept the field in single file until the three-quarters, when the challengers made their moves. While Expose Yourself knifed inside to the Lightning Lane, Glidinthruparadise maintained her momentum outside for Brian Zendt and downed Expose Yourself by a half-length in 1:54.3. Rose Run Sydney saved show.
Ed Zubkoff Jr. trains Glidinthruparadise, a 5-year-old daughter of Yankee Glide-Chowda who extended her career bankroll to $234,633, for Brookside Stables.
Dave Palone collected four wins and Tony Hall three on the 13-race card.
Live racing at The Meadows resumes Saturday, when the program features a pair of rich pool guarantees — $10,000 for the Pick-5, $7,500 for the Pick-4 — as well as a $1,589.30 jackpot in the Super Hi 5. First post is 1:05 p.m.
