WASHINGTON, PA, June 4, 2019 -- Dismissed at 22-1, Keystone Riptide wore down a game Touchamatic, snapping that harness racing rival's six-race winning streak and capturing Tuesday's $20,000 Filly & Mare Open Pace at The Meadows.

Although Touchamatic was parked throughout a contested 26.1 opening quarter, she refused to yield to the first-over challenge of Keystone Riptide and Mike Wilder. At the wire, though, Keystone Riptide thrust her nose in front and triumphed in 1:52, with Magic Forces third.

Randy Bendis trains Keystone Riptide, a 6-year-old daughter of Somebeachsomewhere-Keystone Rebecca who now boasts $314,780 in career earnings, and owns with Pollack Racing.

Jim Pantaleano and Wilder each enjoyed a triple on the 13-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Wednesday, when the card features a pair of carryovers: $1,393.04 in the Pick 5, $352.84 in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 1:05 PM.
