WASHINGTON, PA, Nov. 3, 2015 -- Mistress Valentine pulled the pocket past the half and romped to an easy harness racing victory -- her third straight -- in Tuesday's $18,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.

Mistress Valentine was stalking the leader, Barn Girl, when Mike Wilder tipped her off the cones. The 6-year-old daughter of Master Glide-Patsy's Valentine cleared in a heartbeat and rolled home in 1:54.1. Barn Girl saved second, 2-1/4 lengths back, with Whata Donato third.

Tyler Stillings trains Mistress Valentine, who vaulted over $300,000 in career earnings, and owns with Rags To Riches of PA.

Wilder piloted six winners, including a pair for trainer Ray Romanetti, on the 15-race card.

THE MEADOWS WEDNESDAY CARD OFFERS PAIR OF POOL GUARANTEES

On Wednesday, Nov. 4, the live card at The Meadows Racetrack & Casino will offer two total-pool guarantees — a $10,000 guarantee for the Pick 5 and a $5,000 guarantee for the Pick 4. Both are offered as part of the United States Trotting Association's Strategic Wagering Initiative.

While the $5,000 Pick 4 guarantee is a regular feature each Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, The Meadows added the “instant” Pick 5 guarantee after Tuesday’s Pick 5 was uncovered, resulting in a two-day carryover of $2,780.76.

Minimum wager for the Pick 4 (races 4-7) and Pick 5 (races 11-15) is 50 cents. Since Pennsylvania law requires a minimum per-race wager of $2, a player wagering at the 50-cent level must bet at least four tickets.

First post for Wednesday’s program is 12:55 PM.
