Racing off a 40-day layoff and parked the entire first quarter from post 9, Barn Girl hung tough in the lane and captured Tuesday’s $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
Barn Girl, who last performed in the Sept. 21 Miss Versatility final at the Delaware County Fair — finishing third — was dogged the entire back half by the first-over Classical Annie. But the 5-year-old daughter of Cash Hall-Turquoise Sweetie dug in for Aaron Merriman and edged Classical Annie by a neck in 1:55.2. Fancytucky rallied for show.
Bill Bercury trains Barn Girl, who won for the 12th time this year and now boasts $537,968 in career earnings, for Renee Bercury. It was one of three victories for Merriman on the 13-race card.
