WASHINGTON, PA, Jan. 13, 2020 — Swinging wide off excessive cover through the final turn, Jeffery P roared through the lane and captured Wednesday’s $16,200 Open Handicap Trot at The Meadows.

Jeffery P raced third over down the backside, cover that he probably didn’t need because it forced him well wide in the stretch. But he had a ton of trot for Dave Palone and sailed past th pack to triumph in 1:54.4, 3/4 lengths better than his rallying stablemate, Lady’s Dude. Jessiejesorjessica completed the ticket.

Ron Burke trains Jeffery P, a 6-year-old Full Count-Betty Jean gelding who lifted his career bankroll to $195,523, for Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi LLC and Phillip Collura.

Palone collected three wins on the 13-race card, including a pair for Burke.

Live harness racing at The Meadows continues Thursday when the 13-race program features a $4,679.25 carryover in the final-race Super Hi-5. First post is 12:45 PM.
