Washington, PA – Classic Banker stalked Classicality from the pocket, then knifed through the slop in the lane to pull off the 24-1 upset in Monday’s (July 22) $20,000 Open I Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
Although Classic Banker won last week’s featured trot at 22-1, he was given even less respect at the windows Monday. But Brady Brown gave the 9-year-old Classic Photo-Banker’s Review gelding the perfect trip, as the pair downed the rallying Barn Girl by a length in 1:54.1. Classicality saved show.
Joe Urban owns and trains Classic Banker, who extended his career bankroll to $273,615.
Tony Hall collected three wins on the 13-race card, including a pair for trainer Rich Gillock and owner/breeder Bob Key.
Live racing at The Meadows resumes Tuesday (July 23), when the program features a $4,755.48 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 1:05 p.m. In addition, the draw for post positions for Saturday’s $400,000 final of the Delvin Miller Adios Pace for the Orchids will take place Tuesday. The draw begins at 12:30 p.m. and can be seen on Meadows Live!
