WASHINGTON, PA, April 2, 2018 -- Shuffled to sixth at the three-quarters, Dance For Kisses roared wide through the lane to spring a 16-1 harness racing shocker in Monday's $15,000 opening leg of the Ruby Cook Memorial Pace at The Meadows. The series for 3-year-old fillies honors the memory of the late Ruby Cook, the track's longtime switchboard operator.

Dance For Kisses hadn't raced since Aug. 15 and had only a maiden victory to her credit. But when Bryce Brocklehurst angled her off the cones to the center of the track, the daughter of A Rocknroll Dance-Thirsty For Kisses caught the leader, E Dee's Well Said, and downed her by 3/4 lengths in 1:57. Xfinity Beach earned show. Justin Lebo owns and trains Dance For Kisses.

Dave Palone collected four wins on the 13-race card.

THE MEADOWS INCREASES TUESDAY PICK 5 GUARANTEE TO $25,000

The Meadows Racetrack & Casino has increased — to $25,000 — the total-pool guarantee for its Tuesday, April 3 Pick 5 wager as part of the United States Trotting Association's Strategic Wagering Initiative.

While $5,000 Pick 5 guarantees are offered with each card, The Meadows sweetened the pot when Monday’s Pick 5 was uncovered, resulting in a two-day carryover of $7,342.59.

In addition, Tuesday’s card includes a $7,500 total-pool guarantee for the Pick 4, also a regular feature of each program at The Meadows.

Minimum wager for the Pick 4 (Races 4-7) and Pick 5 (Races 9-13) 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 Tuesday’s program is 1:05 PM.
