Biletnikoff burst to the front, then held off his stablemate, Jojo N Goliath, late to capture his second straight harness racing victory in Tuesday's (December 6) $22,500 Preferred Pace at The Meadows.

Biletnikoff and Aaron Merriman worked out a comfortable front half of 57 over the sloppy surface and parried the first-over thrust of Tuneariffic. Jojo N Goliath, who was riding Tuneariffic’s cover, brushed wide through the lane, only to fall a nose short. Tuneariffic was third. Time for the mile was 1:52.3.

Trainer Paul Kennedy swept the exacta while Biletnikoff triumphed for the fourth time in his last five starts and extended his career bankroll to $646,404. Markus Ernst owns Biletnikoff, a 7-year-old Keystone Raider-Strikadeeze gelding.

Dave Palone drove four winners and Merriman three on the 15-race card.
