WASHINGTON, PA, June 18, 2019 -- Touchamatic proved once again Tuesday she's the dominant pacing mare at The Meadows, cruising to a 1:50.1 harness racing victory in the $18,000 Filly & Mare Open Handicap.

It was the eighth victory in the last nine starts for the 5-year-old daughter of American Ideal-Perfect Touch.

Despite a demanding 26.2 opening panel from post 6, Touchamatic had plenty in the tank for Aaron Merriman, holding off the pocket-sitting Keystone Riptide by 1-1/4 lengths. Medusa finished third. It was one of three wins for Merriman on the 13-race card.

Bill Bercury trains Touchamatic, who soared over $300,000 in career earnings, for Renee Bercury.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Wednesday, when the program features a $969.44 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 1:05 PM.
