Nezblanc earns lifetime mark in Meadows co-feature

Washington, PA – Nezblanc made the decisive move past the half and held off a pair of challengers late to capture Wednesday’s (June 2) co-feature at The Meadows, a $10,100 Conditioned Trot.

Nezblanc (#6) set a new lifetime mark of 1:54.1 in winning Wednesday’s co-feature at The Meadows. Chris Gooden Photos.

Nezblanc took the early lead but was shuffled to third before Tony Hall tipped him off the cones and asked him for trot.  The 4-year-old Donato Hanover-Chilitodayhotamale gelding withstood the Lightning Lane charge of Walkingintherain to down him by a half length in a career-best 1:54.1. Just Like Magic completed the ticket.

In Wednesday’s other co-feature, a $10,100 Filly & Mare Conditioned Pace, Windsun Juno rolled to a commanding win for Dave Palone, trainer Ron Burke and owners Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.  The 5-year-old daughter of Sunfire Blue Chip-Artistic Melody scored in 1:52.3.

Palone piloted four winners on the 13-race card, including a pair each for Burke and trainer Michael Hitchcock.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Thursday (JUne 3) when the 13-race program features a $1,534.56 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 12:45 p.m.
