Monday's (April 18) second leg of the Rembrandt Spur Trot at The Meadows paired the undefeated Washingtonian with the once-beaten Better Caviar. But what appeared a harness racing showdown turned into a "beat-down" when Better Caviar blew by Washingtonian with an uncovered bid and went on to score in 1:55.3, fastest this year for a 3-year-old colt trotter on a five-eighths-mile track.

Washingtonian made a decisive quarter-pole move to the lead and went on to capture a division of Monday's (April 11) Rembrandt Spur Trot - a victory that kept him undefeated in three career starts - at The Meadows. Better Caviar took the other $15,000 opening-leg split in the series for 3-year-old colt and gelding trotters.

Better Caviar extended his career unbeaten streak to four, using an uncharacteristic burst of early speed to capture a harness racing division of Monday's (March 21) Ken Weaver Memorial Trot at The Meadows. Mr Caviar took the other $15,000 second-leg division of the series for 3- and 4-year-old colts and geldings.

Harness racing driver Dan Rawlings sent Better Caviar on a long uncovered move that appeared would fall short of the leader, Well Schooled. But when Well Schooled broke stride in deep stretch, Better Caviar persevered and scored in 1:58, fastest this year by a sophomore trotter on a five-eighths-mile track.

Harness racing fans at The Meadows know who Bettis is -- both of them. One is Jerome Bettis, the now-retired All-Pro running back who played primarily for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the other is his namesake, a red-hot trotter who today was named Horse of the Month for February by the U.S. Trotting Association.
