WASHINGTON, PA, May 15, 2018 -- Lakeisha Hall blew by Medusa in the Lightning Lane to capture Tuesday's $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows. It was a milestone win for the harness racing 5-year-old daughter of Third Straight-Lantana Hall, as she soared over $500,000 in career earnings for trainer Ron Burke and owners Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Jack Piatt II.

Lakeisha Hall and Medusa have been on a collision course for the past two months, clashing first in the Blue Chip Matchmaker Series at Yonkers and more recently in the Chip Noble at Miami Valley. Each has had her moments in the rivalry, but it was Lakeisha Hall's time Tuesday. While Graceful Vision attacked Medusa outside, Dave Palone steered Lakeisha Hall inside, where she drew away and downed Graceful Vision by 1-3/4 lengths in 1:51.3. Shesasmokinlady also shot the Lightning Lane to complete the ticket.

It was one of four wins for Palone -- including a pair for Burke -- on the 13-race card.
