WASHINGTON, PA, Oct. 20, 2018 -- Phoenix Warrior N dueled with Windsong Leo through a 26.4 third quarter before edging away late to capture Saturday's $18,000 Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

Phoenix Warrior N and Jim Pantaleano were stalking Windsong Leo and Dave Palone from the pocket when, after a sluggish 29.3 second panel, they decided to duke it out right there. The rivals raced as a team until the stretch, where the 6-year-old Jereme's Jet-Never Walk Alone gelding was the stronger, downing Windsong Leo by a neck in 1:51.4 over a "good" surface. Dapper Dude finished third.

Scott Betts trains Phoenix Warrior N, who won for the 12th time this year and lifted his career bankroll to $345,973, for Timothy Betts, Nicholas Catalano and Stephen Moss.

Palone collected four wins -- including a pair for trainer Trent Stohler -- while Tony Hall and trainer Ron Burke each enjoyed a triple on the 13-race card.
