WASHINGTON, PA, Feb. 5, 2021 -- Tricky Nick followed the live cover of Tamar through the final turn, then peeled off and charged through the lane to spring a 15-1 upset in Friday's harness racing feature at The Meadows, a $9,400 Conditioned Trot.

Tamar's extended first-over move looked like it might get her home. But when driver Dan Rawlings worked Tricky Nick off the cones to pick up that late cover, he had the stronger horse late. Tricky Nick downed Tamar by a neck in 1:57.2 over a "good" surface, with early leader Star Caviar third.

Tony Hall collected four wins and Rawlings three on the 13-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Wednesday when the program features a $4,590.13 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 12:45 PM.
