WASHINGTON, PA, Jan. 29, 2014 -- Despite jumping up two classes, Magic Wheel controlled the mile after an uncertain start and collected her Third Straight victory in Wednesday's $18,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.

Magic Wheel appeared to be idling on the outside early before Mike Wilder clicked her into gear. She roared to the front and scored in 1:58.1 on a "slow" surface. Don't Blink shot the Lightning Lane but fell a neck short while Lady Crown was third. Daylon Miracle, the 1-9 favorite, faltered first over and finished fifth.

Kris Hite trains Magic Wheel, a 6-year-old daughter of Kadabra-WS Balanced Wheel who extended her career bankroll to $497,795, for Tom Svrcek.

Aaron Merriman and Peter Wrenn each drove three winners on the 14-race card.
