Showing no ill effects from a 10-week layoff, Biletnikoff took advantage of live cover to capture Tuesday's $22,500 harness racing Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

When Tuneariffic came first over after the leader, Windsong Gorgeous, Biletnikoff followed.

Under Aaron Merriman's urging, the 7-year-old Keystone Raider-Strikadeeze gelding vaulted around Tuneariffic to down that rival by a neck in 1:54.4 over a "sloppy" surface.

Jojo N Goliath shot the Lightning Lane for show.

Paul Kennedy trains Biletnikoff, who extended his career bankroll to $635,154, for Markus Ernst.

Dave Palone drove five winners - four for trainer Ron Burke - on the 15-race card.
