Dont Rush got the jump on his stablemate, Lars Perry, and had little trouble holding him off late to capture Saturday’s (Jan. 27) feature at The Meadows, an $11,500 conditioned trot.

Lars Perry got the early lead, but once Dont Rush quarter-poled to the front for Aaron Merriman, he cruised home in 1:56.2 over a "good" surface to down Lars Perry by a length. Mac Deeno finished third.

It was an exacta sweep for trainer Richard Perfido and owner Thomas Mattingly. A 6-year-old son of Infinitif-Color Me Pretty, Dont Rush lifted his lifetime bankroll to $650,140.

Dave Palone and trainer Cory Kreiser teamed for a pair of victories on the eight-race card while Jim Pantaleano also enjoyed a double.

The Meadows has canceled its Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday cards due to the quartine of barns due to horses having high temperatures, which could be a sign of EHV-1. A horse was confirmed positive for EHV-1 last week at The Meadows. (The Meadows)
