WASHINGTON, PA, May 19, 2014 -- Phone Terror used a determined first-over move to edge by a stubborn Do Me Honor and capture Monday's $18,000 Fillies & Mares Not Listed Preferred/Preferred Handicap Pace at The Meadows.

Phone Terror was fourth down the backside when Mike Wilder sent her on her decisive move. Although she couldn't put Do Me Honor away, she was stronger in the stretch, downing Do Me Honor by 3/4 lengths in a career-best 1:52.3. All Heart Gal used Phone Terror's cover to earn show.

Robert Barnard trains Phone Terror, a 5-year-old Western Terror-Miss Lex mare who extended her career bankroll to $279,057, for Lucy Raymond.

Wilder drove four winners on the 15-race card, giving him 19 victories over his last four programs at The Meadows. Brian Zendt also fashioned a triple.

On Tuesday, May 20, The Meadows Racetrack & Casino will offer two pool guarantees — $20,000 for the Pick 4, $7,500 for the Pick 5 — as part of the United States Trotting Association's Strategic Wagering Initiative.

While The Meadows regularly guarantees a $5,000 pool for its Monday and Tuesday Pick 4 wagers, the track enriched the guarantee after no one successfully picked Monday’s Pick 4, resulting in a $4,028.14 carryover.

A two-day Pick 5 carryover of $2,034.80 prompted the addition of the “instant” Pick 5 guarantee.

Minimum wager for the Pick 4 (Races 4-7) and the Pick 5 (Races 11-15) is 50 cents. Since Pennsylvania law requires a minimum per-race wager of $2, a player wagering at the 50-cent level must bet at least four tickets.

First post Tuesday is 12:55 PM.
