Barn Girl rebounds, wins Meadows trot

Washington, PA — Rebounding from a disastrous trip at Northfield Park, Barn Girl shot to the lead and held off a pair of talented challengers to capture Monday’s (June 17) $20,000 Open 1 Handicap Trot at The Meadows.

In that journey at Northfield, Barn Girl was parked most of the way, making the lead briefly but finishing a weary seventh. She had no such difficulties Monday, as she shot to the lead from post four for Aaron Merriman, thwarted the extended first-over bid of Bluebird Jesse, and scored in 1:53.3. The pocket-sitting Cue Hall was second, a length back, while Bluebird Jesse saved show.

Bill Bercury trains Barn Girl, a 7-year-old daughter of Cash Hall and Turquoise Sweetie who now has banked $771,168, for Renee Bercury.

Brian Zendt collected three wins on the 13-race card.

Live racing continues Tuesday (June 18) at The Meadows, when the program features a $705.08 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 1:05 p.m.
