WASHINGTON, PA, Oct. 10, 2017 -- Tessa Seelster quarter-poled to the top and cruised home from there, capturing Tuesday's $20,000 harness racing filly & mare Not Listed Preferred/Preferred Handicap Pace in a sharp 1:51.3.

Tessa Seelster was away second for Dave Palone but sat only briefly behind Spreester before powering to the top. The 5-year-old daughter of Shadow Play-Titania Seelster drew off late, downing Spreester by 3 lengths, while Southwind Roulette shot the Lightning Lane for show.

Elsewhere on Tuesday's card, Flowers N Songs took the $15,000 Filly & Mare Winners Over $10,000 Life Trotting Handicap with an eye-popping charge through the Lightning Lane that carried her from seventh to first in 1:55.2. Dan Charlino piloted the 4-year-old daughter of Deweycheatumnhowe-Pleasure's Song, who now boasts a lifetime bankroll of $539,503, for trainer Rich Gillock and owner/breeder Bob Key.
