WASHINGTON, PA, June 12, 2019 -- Bellamente seized the lead from post 7 and overpowered the field from there in capturing Wednesday's harness racing feature at The Meadows, an $11,800 Conditioned Trot.

Once Bellamente reached the point for Brian Zendt, the 4-year-old daughter of Yankee Glide-Bellissimo had little trouble thwarting the first-over bid of Soldier Hanover and scoring in a career-best 1:56.1. INXS was second, 3-3/4 lengths back, with Buba Can Dance third.

Lisa Dunn trains and owns Bellamente.

In The Meadows' first race of the season for 2-year-olds, Better Song rallied three-wide through the final turn and triumphed in 2:01, fastest this year by a freshman filly trotter on a five-eighths-mile track. Rick Beinhauer trains and drives the daughter of Better Caviar-Jessie's Song and owns with Regina Beinhauer.

Jim Pantaleano piloted four winners on the 13-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Saturday, when the day's activities include five "Hot Dog Pig Races," believed to be a first for the track. The action kicks off at 1:05 PM.
