WASHINGTON, PA, Sept. 6, 2018 -- Shuffled to third after grabbing the early lead, 12-1 long shot EZ Passer responded with a decisive first-over move that carried her to an easy score in Thursday's co-feature at The Meadows, a $13,000 Filly & Mare Conditioned Trot.

EZ Passer zipped to the front for Jim Pantaleano and stretched out two challengers, Delcrest Magicstar and Bella's Punkett, before yielding. The 4-year-old daughter of Crazed-Musclegrad opened an insurmountable lead with her uncovered burst before prevailing by 6-1/2 lengths in 1:54.3.

Rose Run Reanna rallied for second while favorite You're Majestic recovered from an early break to earn show.

Bill Zendt trains EZ Passer, who lifted her career bankroll to $187,821, for Shanamphilaniklou Inc.

In Thursday's companion feature, a $13,000 Filly & Mare Conditioned Pace, Bontz N extended her U.S. unbeaten streak to three with a powerful front-end win in 1:53.1 from post 9 for Tony Hall, trainer Sarah Andrews and owner Michael Jurczykowski.

The 7-year-old daughter of American Ideal-Blue Delight compiled career earnings of $26,689 in her native New Zealand but has banked $19,100 in her first three U.S. starts.

Hall collected four wins and Jim Pantaleano three on the 13-race card.
