WASHINGTON, PA, Dec. 2, 2019 -- Icanflylikeanangel relentlessly pressured the harness racing leader, Final Breath, passed him in mid-stretch and went on to capture Monday's $20,000 Open Handicap Trot at The Meadows.

Icanflylikeanangel was fifth past the half when Mike Wilder sent him first up. Despite having to negotiate a "good" surface, the 5-year-old Archangel-Fox Valley London gelding wore down Final Breath and prevailed in 1:54, matching his career best. Whats The Word shot the Lightning Lane for second, 1-1/4 lengths back, while Final Breath saved show.

Randy Bendis trains Icanflylikeanangel, who extended his career bankroll to $291,776, and owns with Pollack Racing LLC.

Tony Hall and Wilder each piloted four winners on the 13-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Tuesday when the program features a $68,077.56 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 1:05 PM.
