A new racing season began Monday at The Meadows, but it looked like the same old Perlucky, as he rolled to his fifth straight victory in the $18,000 Open 1 Handicap Trot.
Dave Palone sent Perlucky to the point from post 6, and the 5-year-old Lucky Chucky-Paper Girl gelding had nary an anxious moment, defeating the pocket-sitting Cherry Peep by 1 1/2 lengths in 1:55.1. Rising MVP rallied for show.
Ron Burke trains Perlucky, who now boasts $359,909 in career earnings, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Phillip Collura.
Mike Wilder and Palone each collected three wins on the 13-race card. (The Meadows)
