WASHINGTON, PA, July 18, 2018 -- Parked past the quarter in 27.2, Barn Girl still was so dominant that she drew off late and notched her fourth win in the last five starts in Wednesday's $18,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.

Ready Any Time, who vanquished Barn Girl last week, zipped to the front from post 5, intent on stretching Barn Girl out. But when Aaron Merriman asked the 6-year-old daughter of Cash Hall-Turquoise Sweetie for more, she found it and defeated the rallying Delcrest Magicstar by 1-3/4 lengths in 1:54, giving trainer Bill Bercury and owner Renee Bercury the exacta sweep. Chapter Too finished third.

With the victory, Barn Girl vaulted over $700,000 in career earnings.

Dave Palone collected five wins on the 14-race card, including a pair for trainer Ron Burke, while Tony Burke enjoyed a triple.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Saturday, when the card features eliminations for the $450,000 (est) Delvin Miller Adios Pace for the Orchids as well as a pair of stakes for freshman colt and gelding pacers. First post is 1:05 PM.
