WASHINGTON, PA, Aug. 11, 2020 -- Refreshed after a grueling opening panel, Always Giggling shot the Lightning Lane to capture Tuesday's harness racing feature at The Meadows, a $10,800 Filly & Mare Conditioned Pace. The win contributed to a huge day for Mike Wilder, who piloted six winners on the 15-race card.

Always Giggling was parked throughout that 26 first quarter before crossing over but picked up much-needed cover when Summer Charm took the point at the quarter pole. Always Giggling kicked by her late to triumph in 1:51.2, 1/2 length better than the rallying Greenhill Hanover. Summer Charm saved show.

 

Sarah Andrews trains Always Giggling, a 6-year-old daughter of Always A Virgin-Giggles The Clown who now boasts a lifetime bankroll of $472,402, for Jeff Fought Racing.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Wednesday when the 15-race program features a $100,000 Pennsylvania Stallion Series stake for freshman colt and gelding trotters and an $8,892.16 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. Wednesday's action also includes two off-the-card races beginning at 12:15 PM, each a division of the $204,720 Florida Pro for 2-year-old colt and gelding trotters. First post for the pari-mutuel program is 12:45 PM.
