Longshot sets Meadows track record 1:52.2 for sophomore trotting geldings

Washington, PA – Longshot, Ohio’s champion 3-year-old gelding trotter this year, showed Friday (Oct. 14) that he’s pretty capable in Pennsylvania, too. The son of Long Tom-Tintern blazed to victory for Chris Lems in 1:52.2, fastest ever at Hollywood Casino at The Meadows by a sophomore gelding trotter.

Longshot sat patiently in third while Warrawee Whisper did the heavy lifting on the point, then attacked first up near the three quarters. Longshot downed his game rival by one-half length in the $14,600 Conditioned Trot to lift his career bankroll to $316,760. The time knocked a tick from the previous mark established by Goes Down Smooth in 2019.

Fractions for the record mile were 27.4/56.2/1:23.4/1:52.2. Scott Cox trains Longshot for Wayne Mast, Jr. and Callam Racing LLC.

In Friday’s $19,300 Open Handicap Pace, 9-year-old millionaire Sintra rolled to his third straight win despite being forced to a :25.4 opening panel. The Mach Three-Dancin Barefoot gelding scored a front-end 1:49.4 triumph for Hunter Myers, trainer Tim Twaddle and owner Thestable Sintra Group. Sintra pushed his lifetime earnings north of $1.3 million. The first over No Lou Zing was second, beaten 1/2 length, with the pocket-sitting Wild Wild Western third.

Myers collected three wins on the 11-race card, including a pair for Twaddle.

Live racing at The Meadows resumes Tuesday (Oct. 18) when the program features a pair of carryovers: $3,105.30 in the final-race Super Hi-5, $1,269.30 in the Jackpot Pick 5 (race 4). First post is 12:45 p.m.
