MARIA ANDERSSON TAKES MEADOWS UNDER-SADDLE EVENT; HALL WINS 5
WASHINGTON, PA, Nov. 7, 2012 - Maria Andersson and Celebrity Playboy, the only horse in the field who had raced under saddle this year, used that experience well as they scored a front-end victory in 2:04.1 in Wednesday's special Racing Under Saddle Invitational at The Meadows.
Andersson and Celebrity Playboy got the early jump on Dana Mock and Keystone Bernard, who chased the winner home but fell 3-1/4 lengths short. They were the only finishers in the five-horse field, as Wendy Ross (Dontevenknowmymame) and Julie Allison (Y-Dat) broke stride and pulled up, and Nadine Habke (Catch K D) was scratched for refusing to approach the gate.
Ron Burke trains Celebrity Playboy, an 8-year-old Yankee Glide-Clover Mist gelding, for Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC. Twenty percent of the race's $6,000 purse was contributed to a Pittsburgh breast cancer awareness program.
Burke, Burke Racing and Weaver Bruscemi also captured the $22,500 Filly & Mare Preferred Handicap Pace when NY Yankees won her third straight for Dave Palone in 1:53.3. The pocket-sitting Tremor Hanover was second by 1/2 length while Hillbilly Desire finished third after a menacing first-over bid. A 4-year-old daughter of The Panderosa-Pan Yankees, NY Yankees extended her career bankroll to $244,608.
Tony Hall drove five winners and Palone three - all for Burke - on the 15-race card.
