WASHINGTON, PA, Sept. 10, 2014 -- Trailing by 6-1/2 lengths at the half, Classicality went widest in the stretch to pull off a 16-1 shocker in Wednesday's $18,000 Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows. It was the second consecutive Silky Sullivan-style upset for Classicality, who triumphed last week at 10-1.

Waiting On A Woman took the field through the half in 56.3, but a 27.3 third panel made her vulnerable to Classicality's late charge. The 4-year-old Classic Photo-Penn Worthy Lane gelding rolled home for Brian Zendt in a career-best 1:53 to down Better Caviar by 3/4 lengths. Daylon Miracle earned show.

Lisa Dunn-Adams trains the homebred Classicality, who now boasts $143,427 in lifetime earnings, for Dunn Stable.

Dave Palone drove five winners -- three for trainer Ron Burke -- on the 15-race card while Aaron Merriman fashioned a four-bagger.
