Last by 4-1/2 lengths into the final turn and finding no seam available, Easy Again swung wide and roared through the lane to score his second straight win in Saturday's $18,000 Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.
Unlocked, the even-money favorite, appeared comfortable on the lead and headed to victory when Dave Palone opened the throttle on Easy Again. The 7-year-old Dragon Again-Kuklapanandollie gelding triumphed in 1:51.3, downing Unlocked by a head, with Techtor Hanover third.
Ron Burke trains Easy Again, who now boasts career earnings of $873,018, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC, M1 Stable and Panhellenic Stable. It was one of four wins for Palone on the 13-race card.
Live racing at The Meadows resumes with a special July 4 card, first post 5 PM. Highlighting the program are a pair of total-pool guarantees — $15,000 for the Pick 5, $5,000 for the Pick 4. (Meadows)
