WASHINGTON, PA, June 19, 2018 -- Chapter Too, who had been plying her trade at Eastern tracks, made her debut at The Meadows a successful one with a front-end victory in Friday's $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot.

Chapter Too zipped to the lead from post 2 for Dan Rawlings and showed she meant business when she wouldn't release early challengers Glidinthruparadise, who broke stride, and Expose Yourself. The 4-year-old daughter of Chapter Seven-Wood Blue Chip had little trouble holding off the late bid of the pocket-sitting You're Majestic to down her by a length in 1:54.1, matching her career best. Ready Any Time, the 1-1 favorite, finished third.

Jenny Melander trains Chapter Too, who lifted her lifetime bankroll to $230,123, for Belmar Racing & Breeding.

Mike Wilder collected four wins on the 13-race card.

Saturday's program at The Meadows features two rich total-pool guarantees -- $7,500 for the Pick 4 (races 4-7), $5,000 for the Pick 5 (races 9-13). First post is 1:05 PM.
