Washington, PA- Caught widest in a four-ply battle for the early lead, Expose Yourself persevered, eventually crossed over and had just enough late to capture Wednesday’s $20,000 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
Expose Yourself had to work hard on the sloppy track to overcome post nine and needed nearly all the opening three-eighths to reach the point. The 4-year-old daughter of Kadabra-Muscle Shirt tired in deep stretch but found enough for Dave Palone to hold off Chapter Too by a neck in 1:56.2. Glidinthruparadise rallied for show.
Trainer Randy Bendis enjoyed a triple on the 13-race card.
Live racing at The Meadows resumes Saturday, when the program features a $1,510.10 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5.
