ASHINGTON, PA, Jan. 21, 2021 — Maewegonow, the only mare in the field, opened a daylight lead at the three-quarters and romped off to an easy victory in Thursday’s harness racing feature at The Meadows, an $11,000 Conditioned Trot.

The 1-5 favorite gave her backers some anxious early moments as she was looped from the gate and needed the entire opening quarter to cross over. But the 7-year-old daughter of Deweycheatmnhowe-Maurismo still was much the best for Dan Rawlings, scoring in 1:55.2. Mystical Peter found late room to be second, 5 lengths back, with Oh So Pine third.

Richard Perfido trains Maewegonow, who now boasts a lifetime bankroll of $416,509, for Win Rhythm Stables.

Aaron Merriman collected four wins and Rawlings three — including a pair for Perfido and Win Rhythm — on the 13-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Friday when the 13-race program features a $1,143.20 carryover in the Pick 5 (race 8). First post is 12:45 PM.
