WASHINGTON, PA, Sept. 24, 2013 — Weeper had the field in tears once again Tuesday at The Meadows as she jogged off to the fastest win in a $121,200 Keystone Classic for 2-year-old pacing fillies. The event was contested over four divisions, with That Woman Hanover, Lucy’s Pearl and McVita Bella taking the other splits. Mike Wilder (That Woman Hanover, McVita Bella) and Dave Palone (Weeper, Lucy’s Pearl) each enjoyed a stakes double . . . but that’s not all they did. Wilder won a total of seven races and Palone four — including his 16,000th career victory — meaning the duo won all but four of the 15 races on the program. Weeper won the Pennsylvania Stallion Series championship this year and set The Meadows track record of 1:51.4 for freshman fillies earlier in the season. While she didn’t go quite that quickly Tuesday, she grabbed the lead before the quarter and sailed home, scoring in 1:52.3. Also Encouraging was second, 3-1/4 lengths back, with Mayabelle third. “She was staked nice and casual this year,” said Kelly O’Donnell, who conditions the homebred daughter of Allamerican Native-Pleasant Yet Bad for Bay Pond Racing. “She’ll be staked quite a bit more next year for sure. She’ll be put away nice, fresh, solid and sound and should be a great 3-year-old.” That Woman Hanover won her third straight by retaking the lead at the quarter and holding off the late challenge of The Beach Nextdoor to down her by a length in 1:55.2. Case Dismissed earned show. That Woman Hanover had finished no better than fifth in her four Pennsylvania Sires Stakes splits, but Wilder said he never doubted her ability. “I couldn’t draw inside the six hole in any of those races,” Wilder said. “She loves to be in position, she loves to do the work. I was never in position where I wanted to go 26 and risk burning her up.” Dan Altmeyer trains the daughter of Somebeachsomewhere-Sub Rosa Hanover and owns with Richard Kelson, Jack Piatt II and Jeffrey Altmeyer. Although Lucy’s Pearl was parked and didn’t reach the front until the three-eighths, she got the half in a slowish 58.1. It was a cakewalk from there, as she prevailed in 1:55.1, 3-3/4 lengths better than the pocket-sitting Put On A Display. Stucklikeglue stuck around for show. “I think she’s better racing off the pace,” Palone said, “but when the brakes came on up front, I figured we’d be over to the half in 1:01. So I moved her, and they let me put them to sleep the middle half. She gives you a good try every time.” Ron Gurfein trains the daughter of Well Said-Remember When and owns with Elizabeth Novak. In the $18,000 Preferred Handicap Trot, Run And Tell Pap and Wilder shot the Lightning Lane to score in 1:55.1 for trainer Ron Burke and owners Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and M1 Stable.. Redder Than Red was a head back in second with Big And Little third. With the win, the 6-year-old High Falls-Adele’s Jade gelding soared over $400,000 in career earnings. Wednesday’s card at The Meadows features a $120,000 Keystone Classic for 2-year-old filly trotters. First post is 12:55 PM. by Evan Pattak for The Meadows

The previous record of 1:54.1 was held by Dunkster, Hesza Laser and JJ Hall.

Harness Racing at the Du Quoin State Fair begins Friday evening with a trio of $9,000 County Fair Championships heading up the 10-race program at gets under way at 7 o’clock. The 2-year-old colt and gelding trot championship, the last race on the card, brings out Come And Tell Pap (Isaac Love) and Big Bill Breeze (Mike Oosting), who have each won five times on the County Fair Circle and have traded wins against each other. Come And Tell Pap got the best of Big Bill Breeze on July 19 at Petersburg by almost three lengths and then 10 days later Big Bill Breeze returned the favor by drawing off in a Illinois Stallion stake at Charleston, leaving Come And Tell Pap nine lengths behind. Big Bill Breeze, a Nick Prather trainee, was the runner-up in Springfield to eventual champion Tour Hall in an elimination race but missed the final due to sickness. John D Finn’s Finnster, who owns a win against both Come And Tell Pap and Big Bill Breeze, has shown ability when he stays flat. The field is completed with Bully Bust Boy, Battleshoe Crown, Swiss Mocha and Bands Jeeves. The first County Fair Championship to be decided Friday night is the third race for 3-year-old ICF filly trotters. The J D Finn Stable’s High Stepper, a seven-time season winner, is the likely favorite. The daughter of High Falls won her season debut at Hoosier Park with a 2:01.4 mile in the slop and then campaigned at Balmoral before going on the County Fair Circuit. High Stepper will face Foxy Polar, Elegant Rosie, Accokeek Aphrodite, Bands Dee Dee and Sherry’s Band, a six-time season winner for Freddie Patton Jr. Patton will guide the morning line favorite Bands Giant Star in the seventh race 2-year-old filly trot championship. She’ll race as an entry with Bands Fancy. Both fillies are owned and bred by Flacco Family Farms of Alexis, Illinois. Bands Giant Star has won 4 of her first 7 career starts but did draw the 8-slot in the 9-horse field. Macie Rae, who went off stride in the Springfield State Fair Final after third place finish in her elimination, has made five stops in a winner’s circle in her first season of racing for trainer Mike Rogers who will drive the daughter of Powerful Emotion. Landing the rail makes Macie Rae a solid threat if she can mind her racing manners. Looking to pull off an upset are Sweet Bella Breeze, Shady Maple Feisty, Psychicfinn, Dancingthebreeze and Pistol Annie. Mike Oosting, Todd Warren, John Roberts and Kyle Wilfong all are competing Friday night at Du Quoin and are off their drives at Maywood Park where the feature race is a $10,000 high-level conditioned pace.
