Itrustyou sailed through the slop and never had an anxious moment as he captured Tuesday's $18,000 winners-over $10,000 life/preferred handicap pace at The Meadows for his third straight victory.
Dave Palone gave Itrustyou a first half in a comfortable :58.4, effectively ending the race for win. The 5-year-old Third Straight-Dynamic Lady gelding scored in 1:54.3, 1 1/4 lengths better than the rallying Windsong Jack, delivering trainer Ron Burke an exacta sweep. The first-over PL Dragon was third.
Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and RTC Stables own Itrustyou, who now boasts $561,196 in career earnings. Palone drove four winners — three for Burke — on the 16-race card while Brett Miller enjoyed a triple. (The Meadows)
