WASHINGTON, PA, June 11, 2019 -- Touchamatic, who saw her six-race winning streak snapped last week, took the first step to stringing together a new one when she exploded from the pocket lane to capture Tuesday's $18,000 harness racing Filly & Mare Open Pace at The Meadows.

Touchamatic was content to stalk from the pocket for Aaron Merriman and let the front-ending Medusa do the heavy lifting. As they straightened out of the final turn, however, Merriman cut Touchamatic loose, and the 5-year-old daughter of American Ideal-Perfect Touch was by far the fresher mare. She scored in 1:51, 2 lengths better than Medusa, while Keystone Riptide rallied for show.

Bill Bercury trains Touchamatic, who lifted her career bankroll to $296,662, for Renee Bercury.

Ronnie Wrenn, Jr. and Merriman each piloted three winners on the 13-race program.

Live racing at The Meadows continues Wednesday, first post 1:05 PM.
