Perlucky exploded to the front from post 5 and never had an anxious moment as he captured Friday's $16,200 Open Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
The 5-year-old Lucky Chucky-Paper Girl gelding already was comfortable on the front when he threw down a 28 third panel, effectively sealing the deal. He scored in 1:53.1 for Dave Palone, 3 lengths better than Wind Of The North while White Tiger rallied for show.
Ron Burke trains Perlucky, who lifted his lifetime bankroll to $492,339, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Phillip Collura.
Jim Pantaleano piloted five winners and Palone three on the 13-race card.
Live racing at The Meadows resumes Monday when the 13-race program features a $2,334.68 carryover in the Pick 5 (race 8). First post is 12:45 PM.
