WASHINGTON, PA, Feb. 4, 2021 -- It took him two moves to do it, but All About Heaven pulled off a 9-1 upset in Thursday's harness racing co-feature at The Meadows, a $9,800 Claiming Handicap Pace.

All About Heaven left from post 9 and was able to find a seat fifth. But the 6-year-old Rock N Roll Heaven-Ain't That Funny was out before the half for driver Jim Pantaleano with an extended uncovered move that carried him to the top. He thwarted the late charge of Winning Is Sweet to down him by a head in 1:51.4, matching his career best. Whos Better completed the ticket.

 

Neil Balcerak trains the winner for Matthew Morrison, who realized immediate dividends after claiming the horse for $15,000 last week.

In Thursday's co-feature, a $9,800 Conditioned Pace, East Beach rallied from well back to score for Ronnie Wrenn, Jr., trainer Ron Burke and owners Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi, LLC.

Aaron Merriman collected four wins and Burke three on the 13-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Friday when the 13-race program features a $2,767.09 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 12:45 PM.
