WASHINGTON, PA, July 18, 2016 -- Certified Ideal rallied three wide out of the final turn to pull off a 12-1 harness racing upset in Monday's $18,000 Filly & Mare Not Listed Preferred/Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

Certified Ideal followed the live, first-over cover of Very Loudly before Tony Hall sent her wide through the lane. The 6-year-old daughter of Western Ideal-Areba's Last blazed home in 28.1 and scored in 1:51.4. Show Runner was second, 1-1/4 lengths back, while Spreester shot the Lightning Lane for show.

Randy Bendis trains Certified Ideal, who now boasts $478,973 in career earnings, and owns with Mike Novosel, Jr., Tom Pollack and James Walton.

Dave Palone piloted five winners and Hall four on the 14-race card.

Tuesday's card at The Meadows features a $140,000 Pennsylvania Stallion Series stake for freshman colt and gelding pacers. First post is 1 PM.
