Washington, PA — Macadoodledoo followed live cover into the final turn, then brushed wide through the lane to capture Saturday’s (May 8) $16,000 Open Handicap Pace at The Meadows — his second straight victory.
When Ronnie Wrenn, Jr. moved Macadoodledoo behind the first-over Wild Wild Western (Mike Wilder), the 6-year-old Somebeachsomewhere-Pirouette Hanover took full advantage of the cover trip, roaring past Wild Wild Western late and defeating him by 2-1/4 lengths in 1:51. Whos Better finished third.
Ron Burke trains the winner, who extended his career bankroll to $255,574, for Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.
Dave Palone collected three wins on the 13-race card.
Live racing at The Meadows resumes Wednesday when the program features a pair of carryovers — $2,475.27 in the final-race Super Hi-5, $1,674.89 in the Early Pick 4. First post is 12:45 p.m..
