Washington, PA — Wind Of The North turned back the determined uncovered bid of Call For Justice and collected his third straight victory in Tuesday’s (Oct. 2) $20,000 Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
Wind Of The North had to step lively to reach the lead from post seven in :27.3, but when Aaron Merriman gave the 8-year-old Cantab Hall-Talk To The Wind gelding a :30.2 second-quarter breather, he was refreshed and ready for Call For Justice’s challenge. Wind Of The North downed him by a length in 1:54.3, with the pocket-sitting Classicality third in the Lightning Lane.
Bill Bercury trains and owns Wind Of The North, who now boasts $991,598 in career earnings.
Dave Palone piloted four winners on the 13-race card.
