WASHINGTON, PA, Feb. 19, 2020 -- Tamar belatedly found the wide-open Lightning Lane, barreled through and captured Wednesday's harness racing feature at The Meadows, an $11,500 Filly & Mare Conditioned Trot.

When driver Jim Pantaleano and Tamar found themselves blocked behind dueling leaders out of the final turn, they initially abandoned the cones to look for a seam. But when the Lightning Lane beckoned, the duo gladly accepted the offer and scored in 1:56.2, 1/2 length better than Bessie. Long shot Cincinnati Miss completed the ticket.


Carl Cocciolone train Tamar, a 5-year-old daughter of Cash Hall-High Gear Sahbra who boosted her career bankroll to $115,309, and owns with Mark Sosovicka.

Mike Wilder and trainer Ron Burke each enjoyed a triple on the 13-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Friday when the program features a $6,020.53 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 1:05 PM.
