WASHINGTON, PA, Oct. 30, 2015 -- Rompaway Galaxy followed cover into the far turn, then brushed wide through the stretch to capture Friday's $20,000 Winners Over $10,000 Life Handicap Trot at The Meadows as the track kicked off its Fall/Winter harness racing meeting.

Rompaway Galaxy was racing at the fifth track in his last seven races, but the 4-year-old Rompaway Wally-Rompaway Wynona gelding showed no signs of road weariness. He shed the faltering cover of Monte Cristo Spur and gobbled up the leader, Lady's Dude, downing him by a neck in 1:55.2. The ground-saving Classicality earned show. Mike Wilder drove for trainer Marty Wollam and owner Rompaway Farms.

Wilder piloted four winners on the 15-race card while Dave Palone fashioned a triple.

Saturday's 15-race program at The Meadows begins at 11:25 AM to complement the track's simulcast of the Thoroughbred Breeders' Cup.
