WASHINGTON, PA, June 23, 2017 -- Fifth by 6 lengths when he launched his relentless uncovered move, Dapper Dude nailed Lincolnjames in the shadow of the wire to capture Friday's $18,000 harness racing winners over $10,000 Life/Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

Lincolnjames opened a 2-length lead turning for home, but a 26.2 opening panel over a sloppy surface left him vulnerable to Dapper Dude's pressure. The 8-year-old son of The Panderosa-Dress To Suggest edged Lincolnjames by 1/2 length in 1:50.2 for Aaron Merriman, with the rallying Knocking Around third.

With the victory, Dapper Dude vaulted over $1.1 million in career earnings for trainer Bill Bercury and owner Renee Bercury.
