Barn Girl shuts doors on rivals at The Meadows
« Return to News
A "win machine" in 2017 with 15 victories, Barn Girl launched the new year in her customary fashion with a front-end score in Thursday’s $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
Barn Girl zipped to the front from post 7 for Aaron Merriman and easily turned back the first-over bid of Dreamsteeler. The 6-year-old daughter of Cash Hall-Turquoise Sweetie held off the late challenge of the third-over Classical Annie to defeat her by a neck in 1:56.4 over a "good" surface. Lady Ping finished third.
Bill Bercury trains Barn Girl, who now boasts a lifetime bankroll of $579,868, for Renee Bercury.
Ronnie Wrenn, Jr. and Merriman each collected a triple on the 12-race card.
