WASHINGTON, PA, June 17, 2019 -- Rebounding from a disastrous trip at Northfield Park, Barn Girl shot to the lead and held off a pair of talented harness racing challengers to capture Monday's $20,000 Open 1 Handicap Trot at The Meadows.

In that journey at Northfield, Barn Girl was parked most of the way, making the lead briefly but finishing a weary seventh. She had no such difficulties Monday, as she shot to the lead from post 4 for Aaron Merriman, thwarted the extended first-over bid of Bluebird Jesse and scored in 1:53.3. The pocket-sitting Cue Hall was second, a length back, while Bluebird Jesse saved show.

Bill Bercury trains Barn Girl, a 7-year-old daughter of Cash Hall-Turquoise Sweetie who now has banked $771,168, for Renee Bercury.

Brian Zendt collected three wins on the 13-race card.

Live racing continues Tuesday at The Meadows, when the program features a $705.08 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post 1:05 PM.
