WASHINGTON, PA, Aug. 7, 2019 -- There was no floating like a butterfly for Stinglike A B K; he powered right to the top and widened his lead late to capture Wednesday's co-feature at The Meadows, an $11,800 Conditioned Trot.

Hydration took Wednesday's companion feature, an $11,800 Conditioned Pace, in similar front-end fashion, scoring in 1:52.1 for Dave Palone, trainer Brian Brown and owners Country Club Acres, Joe Sbrocco and Strollin Stable.

Tony Hall pointed Stinglike A B K to the front, and the 3-year-old son of Andover Hall-Winning Missbrenda brooked no challenges, prevailing in a career-best 1:56.2. Just Fly Beyond was second, 2-1/4 lengths back, with Bellesvictorysong third. Rich Gillock trains the winner for owner/breeder Bob Key.

Jim Pantaleano piloted three winners on the 13-race program while Aaron Johnston enjoyed a training/driving double.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Saturday, when the card features a pair of stakes for 2-year-old colt and gelding pacers: a $182,052 Pennsylvania Sires Stake and a $60,000 PA Stallion Series event. On the wagering front, the program offers a carryover of $4,545.21 in the Pick 5 (races 2-6) and a $190.24 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 1:05 PM.
