WASHINGTON, PA, Sept. 7, 2017 -- Dismissed at 10-1, Classicality roared to the front from post 6 and never had an anxious moment as he captured Wednesday's harness racing $20,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.

Classicality made a rare break in his last start, the Open 1 Trot at Scioto Downs, but he atoned for that big time by shrugging off the first-over challenge of Barn Girl and scoring for Brian Zendt in 1:53.4, 1/2 length better than the pocket-sitting Rose Run Parker, while Barn Girl gamely held third. Call For Justice, who had won his last nine races at The Meadows, saw that streak end when he finished fifth.

Lisa Dunn trains and owns Classicality, a 7-year-old Classic Photo-Penn Worthy Lane gelding who now boasts a lifetime bankroll of $464,142.

Tony Hall and Dave Palone each piloted three winners on the 12-race card.

Saturday's program at The Meadows offers a number of attractive wagering opportunities, including: the regularly featured $5,000 total-pool guarantee for the Pick 4 (races 4-7); a $2,516.88 carryover for the card's first superfecta; a $1,283.73 carryover for the Pick 5 (races 8-12). First post is 1:05 PM.
