Tony Hall had five winners at the Meadows

WASHINGTON, PA, Dec. 16, 2014 -- Certified Ideal outdueled Macharoundtheclock for the early lead, then held her off in the lane to capture Tuesday's $18,000 Filly & Mare Not Listed Preferred/Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows. It was one of five winners on the card for driver Tony Hall.

Certified Ideal withstood a strong first-over challenge from Novascotia Hanover that might have weakened her. But when Tony Hall asked her for late pace, the 4-year-old daughter of Western Ideal-Areba's Last found enough to down Macharoundtheclock by a neck in 1:54.1 over a "good" surface. Do Me Honor was third.

Randy Bendis trains Certified Ideal, who has won 11 races this year and $278,467 in her career, and owns with Mike Novosel, Jr., Tom Pollack and James Walton.

Hall piloted five winners and Dave Palone three on the 15-race card.

On Wednesday, Dec. 17, The Meadows Racetrack & Casino will offer a $15,000-guaranteed total pool for its Pick 5 wager as part of the United States Trotting Association's Strategic Wagering Initiative. The Meadows added the “instant” guarantee after Tuesday’s Pick 5 was uncovered, resulting in a two-day carryover of $4,148.67.

Minimum wager for the Pick 5 (Races 11-15) is 50 cents. Since Pennsylvania law requires a minimum per-race wager of $2, a player wagering at the 50-cent level must bet at least four tickets.

First post for Wednesday’s program is 12:55 PM.
