WASHINGTON, PA, Dec. 1, 2018 -- Windsong Leo knifed through the slop to collect his 19th win this season -- and third straight -- in Saturday's $18,000 Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows. Southwind Amazon is the "winningest" horse in harness racing this year with 20 victories while Windsong Leo is part of a four-way tie for second.

Dave Palone gave Windsong Leo a 29.4 second-quarter breather, which helped him shrug off the first-over challenge of Phoenix Warrior N. The 6-year-old Jereme's Jet-Windsong Goldie gelding downed his stablemate, the pocket-sitting Hawk's Red Chief, by 2 lengths in 1:51.4, with Phoenix Warrior A third.

Ron Burke trains Windsong Leo, who now boasts career earnings of $397,650, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Phillip Collura.

Palone piloted six winners on the 13-race card. Also enjoying big days were Burke, with four victories, and Aaron Merriman, who fashioned a three-bagger.
