WASHINGTON, PA, July 8, 2017 -- Dapper Dude zipped to the lead from post 8 before releasing Lincolnjames, then blew by him in the lane to capture Saturday's $20,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

That early battle for the front went in a demanding 26.2, but Dapper Dude had enough left for Dick Stillings to edge the rallying Knocking Around by a nose in 1:51.3, with Rip This Joint third. Bill Bercury trains the 8-year-old son of The Panderosa-Dress To Suggest, who boosted his lifetime bankroll to $1,115,480, for Renee Bercury.

Tony Hall, Aaron Merriman, Dave Palone and Mike Wilder each collected a pair of wins on the 12-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Monday, when the program features an $80,000 Pennsylvania Stallion Series stake for freshman filly trotters as well as a $15,000 total-pool guarantee for the Pick 4, races 4-7. First post is 1:05 PM.
