WASHINGTON, PA, June 26, 2018 -- Pilgrims Tide exploded first over down the backside, opened up a daylight lead and rolled home to victory -- his second straight -- in Tuesday's feature at The Meadows, a $13,000 Conditioned Trot.

Dismissed at 8-1, Pilgrims Tide was third when Dan Rawlings sent him after the leader, Goodtogo Hanover. The 5-year-old Muscle Massive-Raysofgrace De Vie gelding was ahead by 3 lengths before the field turned for home, ultimately downing the 4-5 favorite, Swell Chap, by a length in 1:54.4. Chef Lee shot the Lightning Lane for show.

Sarah Andrews trains Pilgrims Tide for Sandbur Farms, Valarie Sutton and Joseph Hemingway.

Aaron Merriman and Dave Palone each collected four wins on the 13-race card.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Friday with a special twilight card, first post 5:30 PM.
