Run And Tell Pap overcame post 8 with a quick burst to the lead and rolled on to his second straight victory in Wednesday's $24,800 winners over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
Once on the front, Run And Tell Pap withstood the first-over challenge of Trustworthy Kid and scored for Dave Palone in 1:57.3 over a "good” surface. The pocket-sitting TSM Photo Bugger was second, 1 1/2 lengths back, while Austin's Jon Jon rallied for show.
Ron Burke trains Run And Tell Pap, a 7-year-old High Falls-Adele's Jade gelding who extended his career bankroll to $442,921, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and M1 Stable.
Palone drove four winners — three for Burke — on the 16-race card. With a pair of victories, Brian Zendt vaulted over $20 million in career purses. (The Meadows)
