It was déjà vu all over again Tuesday at The Meadows as, for their second straight encounter, Perlucky outkicked Icanflylikeanangel in the Lightning Lane to capture the $17,900 Open Handicap Trot.
As in that earlier meeting, Perlucky stretched out Icanflylikeanangel to a 27 opening panel before releasing him. In the lane, Perlucky brushed by for Dave Palone, downing his rival by 3/4 lengths in 1:53.1. Rainbowinthewest, the lone mare in the field, rallied for show.
Ron Burke trains Perlucky, a 5-year-old Lucky Chucky Paper Girl gelding who now boasts a career bankroll of $448,011, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Phillip Collura.
Palone, who piloted five winners Monday, matched that total Tuesday. Mike Wilder also enjoyed a fine day with three wins on the 15-race card.
Live racing at The Meadows continues Wednesday when the 15-race program features a $6,792.07 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 12:45 PM.--By Evan Pattak/Meadows Standardbred Owners Association
