WASHINGTON, PA, Jan. 13, 2020 -- Explosive Leggs moved determinedly first over, collared the leader, Just Maybe The One, in the shadow of the wire and captured Monday's co-feature harness racing trot at The Meadows, an $11,500 Conditioned evemt.

Just Maybe The One threw down a 27.4 third quarter but couldn't shake Explosive Leggs, who defeated him by 1/2 length in 1:55 for Tony Hall. Lars Perry finished third.

 

Carl Cocciolone trains the winner, who now boasts career earnings of $257,095, and owns with Mark Sosovicka.

In the other co-feature, also an $11,500 Conditioned Trot, IC Caviar overpowered the field with a 1:55.1 front-end victory for Mike Wilder and trainer John Sullivan, who owns the 9-year-old Malabar Millennium-Lady Caviar gelding with Michael Marocco. IC Caviar pushed his lifetime bankroll to $286,985.

 

Mike Wilder collected four wins on the 13-race card while Greg Wright, Jr. fashioned a training/driving double.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Tuesday when the program features a $5,000 total-pool guarantee in the Pick 4 (races 3-6). First post is1:05 PM.
