WASHINGTON, PA, Nov. 20, 2019 -- Delcrest Holiday stalked the race leader from the pocket, then poured through the Lightning Lane to capture his second straight harness racing victory in Wednesday's feature at The Meadows, a $13,500 Conditioned Trot.

Delcrest Holiday grabbed the early lead for Dave Palone but released Rising MVP in favor of the pocket. When Palone pointed him inside, Delcrest Holiday surged past Rising MVP to down him by 1/2 length in 1:54.4, with Deweyknowigotit third.

Ron Burke trains the winner, a 4-year-old Holiday Road-Northern Kitti gelding who extended his lifetime bankroll to $118,707, for Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.

Aaron Merriman and trainer Trent Stohler teamed for a pair of victories on the 12-race card while Dan Rawlings, Mike Wilder and Palone each enjoyed a double.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Friday, when the program features a $46,535.23 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post for the 13-race card is 1:05 PM.
