BURKE PAIR SWEEPS MEADOWS SERIES SPLITS
WASHINGTON, PA, March 16, 2013 - Mattwestern and Save My Dragon, a pair of Ron Burke trainees piloted by Dave Palone, swept Friday's $12,500 divisions of the Donna Dunn Memorial Pace, a series for 3- and 4-year-old fillies and mares, at The Meadows.
Mattwestern won her opening-leg division last week off a five-month layoff and, if anything, looked even more impressive in repeating. Though parked the first quarter, she sailed home without a serious challenge in a sharp 1:53.4, 1-3/4 lengths better than the pocket-sitting Emotional Wreck. Michabu finished third. Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC own the 3-year-old daughter of Western Terror-Mattonement.
Stuck with post 9, Save My Dragon had little trouble securing the early lead and scoring in 1:54.2. Lil Miss Snowflake rallied for second, 3/4 lengths back, with Iwannebejustlikeu third. The 3-year-old daughter of Dragon Again-Save My Life races for Duke Sugg, Randall Van Hutchison and Robert V. Hutchison.
Palone (4) and Brett Miller (5) dominated Friday's action, combining for nine victories on the 12-race card, while Burke notched four wins overall.
