Washington, PA — Maewegonow, the only mare in the field, opened a daylight lead at the three-quarters and romped off to an easy victory in Thursday’s (Jan. 21) feature at The Meadows, an $11,000 conditioned trot.
The 1-5 favorite gave her backers some anxious early moments as she was looped from the gate and needed the entire opening quarter to cross over. But the 7-year-old daughter of Deweycheatmnhowe and Maurismo still was much the best for Dan Rawlings, scoring in 1:55.2. Mystical Peter found late room to be second, five lengths back, with Oh So Pine third.
Richard Perfido trains Maewegonow, who now boasts a lifetime bankroll of $416,509, for Win Rhythm Stables.
Aaron Merriman collected four wins and Rawlings three — including a pair for Perfido and Win Rhythm — on the 13-race card.
Live racing at The Meadows continues Friday (Jan. 22), when the 13-race program features a $1,143.20 carryover in the Pick-5 (races 8-12). First post is 12:45 p.m.
