WASHINGTON, PA, Aug. 17, 2020 -- Trailing by 2 lengths at the top of the lane, Quality Bud found another gear late and kicked past the harness racing leader to pull off the 10-1 upset in Monday's $16,200 Open Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

Wild Wild Western appeared to have the race in hand, but that was before Quality Bud launched his rally for Dan Rawlings. The7-year-old Quality Western-Rosebud-Heather gelding downed Wild Wild Western by a 1/2 length, with Carolina Beach -- who experienced early traffic problems --a solid third.


Zach Tackett trains Quality Bud, who lifted his lifetime bankroll to $239,526, for My Buddy Stables.

Tony Hall collected four wins on the 15-race card while Dave Palone and Rawlings each fashioned a triple.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Tuesday when the 15-race program features a $14,768.05 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5 and a $5,000 total-pool guarantee for the Early Pick 4 (race 3). First post is 12:45 PM.
