WASHINGTON, PA, June 30, 2020 -- Rebounding from last week's uncharacteristic break, Perlucky exploited a pocket trip and captured Tuesday's $17,900 Open Handicap Trot at The Meadows in a career best 1:52.4.

Perlucky shot to the lead for Dave Palone and stretched out Icanflylikeanangel to a demanding 26.3 opening panel before releasing him. The 5-year-old Lucky Chucky-Paper Girl gelding kicked by the vulnerable leader in mid-stretch and downed him by a neck, with long shot Tequila Talkin third.


Ron Burke trains Perlucky, who extended his lifetime bankroll to $370,066, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Phillip Collura.

Mike Wilder and Palone each collected three wins on the 15-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Wednesday when the 15-race program features a $6,400.77 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5 and a $1,357.00 carryover in the Early Pick 5 (race 2). First post is 12:45 PM.
