Washington, PA – Jameson N Lime needed two moves to get there, but she notched her fourth straight victory in Friday’s (Aug. 5) $10,000 opening leg of a Pop Up Series for 2-year-old filly trotters at Hollywood Casino at The Meadows.
Jameson N Lime opened her career with a fourth-place finish in a Pennsylvania Stallion Series stake; she’s been perfect since then. On Friday, the daughter of Father Patrick-Lindy On The Rocks found the pocket from post -eight for Brady Brown, then abandoned it into the final turn to go after the leader, Show Me Da Moni. Jameson N Lime downed that rival by 1/2 length in a career-best 1:59, with Cutiecumber third.
Steve Schoeffel trains the winner for Virginia Schoeffel, Kathy Schoeffel, Big L Stable and Mary Owlett.
In Friday’s co-feature, the $10,000 opening leg of a Pop Up Series for freshman colt and gelding trotters, Brace For Landing seized the lead early for Anthony MacDonald and dominated, breaking his maiden in style in 1:56.1. His stablemate, Landing Strip, was second, two-lengths back, while Fire N Lightning earned show.

Palone collected five wins and Burke three on the 11-race card.
