Barn Girl wins 50th career race

Barn Girl thwarted the late challenge of Ready Any Time and went on to capture Wednesday's $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Trot at The Meadows, her eighth win in 11 starts this year and the 50th victory of her career.

Barn Girl endured a demanding opening quarter -- three wide in :27.1 -- before reaching the front, a trip that could have made her vulnerable. But in characteristic fashion, she dug in for Aaron Merriman when Ready Any Time loomed boldly and defeated her by three-quarters of a length in 1:54. The pocket-sitting Expose Yourself finished third.

Bill Bercury trains Barn Girl, a 6-year-old daughter of Cash Hall-Turquoise Sweetie who lifted her lifetime bankroll to $683,668, for Renee Bercury. It was one of four wins on the 13-race program for Merriman. (The Meadows)
