WASHINGTON, PA, Sept. 9, 2019 -- Classicality dominated Monday's $20,000 Open I Handicap Trot at The Meadows, scoring in 1:53.1 and soaring over $700,000 in harness racing career earnings.

Classicality zipped to the top from post 5 for Brian Zendt, and with Barn Girl challenging but parked, no outside flow could develop. The 9-year-old Classic Photo-Penn Worthy Lane gelding drew away late to triumph by 8-1/4 lengths. Maewegonow was second while Rainbowinthewest and the game Barn Girl dead-heated for show.

Lisa Dunn trains and owns Classicality, whose official bankroll now stands at $704,687.

Aaron Merriman piloted three winners on the 13-race card, including a pair for trainer Robert Barnard and owner Christian Apel, while Tony Hall also enjoyed a triple that featured two victories for trainer Tim Twaddle.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Tuesday when the program offers three rich wagering opportunities: a $5,000 total-pool guarantee for the Pick 4 (races 3-6); a $1,063.95 carryover in the Pick 5 (races 2-6), a $1,776.44 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 1:05 PM.
