Dragon City powers from the pocket to take Meadows feature; Merriman wins five

Washington, PA — Dragon City let 1-1 favorite Ants Marching do the heavy lifting on top, then powered past him in the lane to capture Friday’s feature at Hollywood Casino at The Meadows, a $13,500 conditioned pace.

Ants Marching threw down a 1:22 three-quarters, much to the delight of Dragon City and Aaron Merriman, who were stalking from the pocket. When Merriman cut Dragon City loose out of the final turn, he cruised past easily and triumphed in 1:50.2. Longshot Roll With Time was second, 3-1/2 lengths back, while Bronx Seelster rallied for show.

Randy Bendis conditions Dragon City, a 5-year-old Heston Blue Chip-Dragon Town gelding who now boasts a career bankroll of $163,409, and owns with Pollack Racing. It was one of five wins for Merriman on the 13-race card.

Because the Greater Pittsburgh Food Truck Festival will be using part of the track on Saturday, there will be no live racing at The Meadows. Live racing resumes Wednesday, first post 12:45 p.m.
