Washington, PA – Touchamatic outdueled Camera Lady for the early lead and rolled home without a serious challenge in a sharp 1:50.2 in Tuesday’s (July 9) $20,000 Filly & Mare Open Handicap Pace at The Meadows.
Touchamatic easily thwarted the first-over challenge of Baron Remy and defeated Camera Lady by two lengths, with Keystone Riptide a ground-saving third. Aaron Merriman piloted the 5-year-old daughter of American Ideal-Perfect Touch, who won for the 11th time this season and extended her career bankroll to $317,822, for trainer Bill Bercury and owner Renee Bercury.
It was one of five victories for Merriman on the 13-race card.
