Lakeisha Hall zipped to the front for Dave Palone and stretched out her early challengers, Touchamatic and McDazzle, to the three-eighths before yielding. Thus, when Lakeisha Hall attacked, that early duo was vulnerable. Lakeisha Hall downed McDazzle — her stablemate — by a half-length in 1:52.4 over a “good” surface while Dark Force rallied for show.

Ron Burke trains Lakeisha Hall, a 7-year-old daughter of Third Straight-Lantana Hall who now boasts $757,989 in career earnings, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Jack Piatt II.

Tony Hall collected three wins on the 13-race card, including a pair for trainer Scott Betts.

After multiple carryovers, Wednesday’s Super Hi-5 was hit, returning $17,889.08. Live racing at The Meadows resumes Friday (February 14) first post 1:05 p.m.
