WASHINGTON, PA, Jan. 21, 2020 -- Icanflylikeanangel set sail after the leader, Perlucky, at the three-quarters, collared him in mid-stretch and went on to capture Tuesday's harness racing $18,000 Open Handicap Trot at The Meadows.

Icanflylikeanangel was third when Mike Wilder tipped him off the cones. The 6-year-old Archangel-Fox Valley London gelding advanced determinedly on Perlucky, downing him by 1/2 length in 1:53.3. Final Breath earned show.

Randy Bendis trains the winner, who lifted his lifetime bankroll to $318,176, and owns with Pollack Racing LLC.

In Tuesday's co-feature, the $20,000 Filly & Mare Open Handicap Pace, 10-1 outsider Dark Force followed the live cover of McDazzle and edged her at the wire to pull off the upset for Tony Hall.

The 5-year-old daughter of Bettor's Delight-Skinny Dip scored in 1:52.2 in extending her career earnings to $194,638 -- and giving Bendis and Pollack a sweep of the day's co-features. It was one of three wins for Hall on the 13-race card.
