Parked past the quarter in a wicked :26.3, Itrustyou still was much the best Tuesday at The Meadows, capturing the $18,000 Preferred Handicap Pace in a sharp 1:51.2 for his second straight victory and third in the last four.
Sam Hill charged to the early lead and stung Itrustyou, but the 5-year-old Third Straight-Dynamic Lady gelding shrugged off the demanding panel, defeating Sam Hill by 2-1/2 lengths for Dave Palone. PL Dragon finished third.
Ron Burke trains Itrustyou, who now boasts $552,196 in career earnings, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and RTC Stables. Palone drove five winners — three for Burke — on the 15-race card while Aaron Merriman and Brett Miller each fashioned a triple. (The Meadows)
