WASHINGTON, PA, Feb. 12, 2020 -- Lakeisha Hall pounced on the harness racing leaders with a quick backside burst and went on to capture Wednesday's $18,000 Filly & Mare Open Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

Lakeisha Hall zipped to the front for Dave Palone and stretched out her early challengers, Touchamatic and McDazzle, to the three-eighths before yielding. Thus, when Lakeisha Hall attacked, that early duo was vulnerable. Lakeisha Hall downed McDazzle -- her stablemate -- by 1/2 length in 1:52.4 over a "good" surface while Dark Force rallied for show.


Ron Burke trains Lakeisha Hall, a 7-year-old daughter of Third Straight-Lantana Hall who now boasts $757,989 in career earnings, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Jack Piatt II.

Tony Hall collected three wins on the 13-race card, including a pair for trainer Scott Betts.

After multiple carryovers, Wednesday's Super Hi-5 was hit, returning $17,889.08. Live racing at The Meadows resumes Friday, first post 1:05 PM.
