PERFECT CHANCE OVERCOMES POST 9 TO TAKE MEADOWS TOP F&M TROT; HALL WINS 5
WASHINGTON, PA, Jan. 18, 2013 - Able to squeeze into a seat along the pylons after leaving from post 9, Perfect Chance made the most of her good fortune by powering to victory - her fourth in her last five starts - in Friday's $22,500 Filly & Mare Winners Over $10,000/Preferred Handicap Trot at The Meadows.
It appeared that Perfect Chance would be stuck outside in a 27.3 opening quarter when Dave Palone steered her into the fifth spot. The 3-5 favorite followed the first-over cover of Anastasia Whinnie and drew off late to score in 1:54.3, a tick off her lifetime best. Action-Broadway rallied for second, 3 lengths back, while Anastasia Whinnie saved show.
Ron Burke trains Perfect Chance, a 6-year-old daughter of Andover Hall-Perfect Patty who now boasts career earnings of $266,814, for Burke Racing Stable and Weaver Bruscemi LLC.
Tony Hall drove five winners on the 15-race card while Palone enjoyed a triple.
